Ok, for once and for all, and please read up the following words loudly 
while reading them:





It has always been communicated that the parsing of FPC output is a bad 
idea. The output is designed to be readbable for humans, not for 
computers. We want, and feel free to, have the options to change the text 
output of FPC completely.

If you don't want to use the compiler unit, feel free to design a protocol 
for more computer friendly messages.
