Contrary to most others, my analysis is the following:

It's really great that fpc now generates binaries of competitive size
with the Delphi ones, and the build size is IHMO good for a software
this big, and much better then it used to be.

The fact that Delphi's compile time is excelent doesn't mean that ours
isn't good.

Try compiling a software this big written in c++ =) You can go to the
cinema and come back that it will still be compiling.
