Well, this statement assumes that all users think how the compiler
processes their source (which is accepted by the compiler as valid). BTW,
I believe that it works with some other compilers, so why should they
think FPC would be different? Obviously, this is related to name mangling
in general and implications of overloading support, but this probably
isn't visible for most users.
