Graphics unit in the VCL. It's a better design than what Delphi has, 
so takes more place. 
Delphi's Graphics is very Win32 oriented, we wanted to have something 
more general; and this requires more space. 

Obviously not all FCL units have a counterpart in the VCL. TProcess for instance.

In each case, the discussion is currently continued on the core list, 
we want to do some more general redesign of the directory structure of
the FPC distribution.
