Actually, with other parts of this patch accepted FList may even remain private,
since the procedures I added are exactly what Lazarus (currently) needs.
However, they will only be available after fpc 2.4 is out,
which is IIUC still at least half a year away.
So to avoid such issues in the future I think 'protected' is
appropriate safeguard.

As for the property -- sure, it can be used, but I do not see any
essential difference
in this case. So whatever you prefer.

Actually, from my recent experience, the best course of action is to use
both mailing list and Mantis at once ;-)
