Oh, I never tried that. I 99.99% of the time use ObjFPC mode - I much
prefer the more strict language rules.  Why doesn't FPC support
'strict private' in ObjFPC mode as well?  It seem like a very handy
feature that many developers could benefit from, not just in Delphi
code ported to FPC. Just in my code alone, I can think of a few places
where it could be used.

Plus it's a non-invasive feature. If you don't know about it, or
simply don't use it, your code acts exactly the same as it did before.
