That is my POV, as well.

OpenMP seems to be a relatively quite easy "add-on" for compiler makers, 
so the GCC people decided to tightly implement it. It seems helpful with 
a number of common tasks.

If you want to have _really_ good optimization, have to solve a a really 
complex or non-standard problem, you of course are lost with OpenMP and 
need to use more appropriate methods. Supposedly will not use FPC here 
but a more low-level programming language (like GCC without OpneMP
