This is not 100% related with topic, but I would ask if one proposal
have sense in the Pascal "spirit".

In the past I had some autogenerated pascal programs, but to include
them in another unit I must manually split the files in interface and
implementation. Would be possible to do something like:

{$I InterfaceOnly C:\xxxx.pas}
{$I ImplementationOnly C:\xxxx.pas}

I think it will not include a big penalty in the parser, or maybe I'm
completly wrong ?

Best regards,
