I don't see any beating here either:
* http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=412927
* http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=509873
* http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=473955

Even if they disagree, you just get the facts as they see it: https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=333366

Really, developers (Linux or otherwise) that deal with this sort of  
bugs generally won't bite your or anyone else's head off just because  
you use Pascal or a non-FSF compiler.
