Which is very bad practice for a commercial IDE (makes third-party
commercial components support only some versions of Delphi [had suggested to
Borland to sell a special bundle with all Delphi versions from 2 and up in
it for component developers, but haven't seen this happen yet
unfortunately]). Some people had used Delphi trial versions in the past to
build resulting in their apps showing expiration messages later on (the RTL
had this built in as it seems)
