I agree. I'm starting to feel sick of all the compat crap you guys put
up with playing the bitch of delphi. The problem is that now delphi is
the bitch of .net so I think wisest would be to implement 100% compat up
to delphi 7 and be done with it. Then just document the fact and point
people to mode objfpc and our new stuff.

You know I'm open to new things but I think doing compat past D7 is in
99% a waste of time resources and impurification of the language
(most .net guys won't go to fpc anyhow, they'll eventually switch to C#)
