That is exactly what happened.  I only develop under FPC, but
contribute a lot to the tiOPF project, which is mostly used by Delphi
developers.   I broke the Delphi builds by adding the $IF..$ENDIF
code.  The tiOPF project uses the Delphi Mode for the FPC compiler,
and I was surprised when notified of the problem.

Where do I go, to ask for such a feature in Borland Delphi?  I guess
it would take years to materialize. :-)   Borland is not as pro-active
as the FPC maintainers!!


There's no place like
