Because object pascal (OP) is NOT like other languages. That's why we 
love it or we won't use it at the first place. ;)

It's micro-role in the total picture of software business, it's correct. 
Anyway, OP is a niche language and won't fit the "total picture". But 
for OP developers or software business that came from Delphi background 
this feature is a must-have.

I also vote for it. Yes, I can live without it. But my life would be 
nicer and easier if it exists. :-D
