I think it will be more obvious as to why it is useful, when you start looking for
DSO/DLL packages in the next compiler which has dynamic FPC packages working. i.e. on
linux in /lib/ any DSO that starts with fp is easy to spot. If no FP prefix then
RTL.so may conflict with many other DSO's out there.
