I don't like the looks of lines like:
{$IFDEF S}function{$ELSE}var{$ENDIF}foobar_dosomething{$IFDEF D}: 
function{$ENDIF}(a:cint; b:cdouble): cint; extdecl;{$IFDEF S}external 

They are hard to read. I understand that this way makes sure that both 
static and dynamical declaration are in sync, but the loss of 
readability is too much.

Maybe it is better to generate a foobar_dyn.inc based on the foobar.inc 
or generate both foobar.inc and foobar_dyn.inc from a common file format 
(maybe even the original header file).
