Ah, but that would explain why I don't use it. I never develop in
delphi mode, only objfpc mode - unless I work with projects like tiOPF
where both compilers (Delphi and FPC) are requirements.

I'll double check now if objfpc mode also supports strict
private/protected. If not, this thread might be a good reason for it
to be supported in objfpc mode too. It shouldn't cause any harm to
other developers either - if you never used it before you will not
notice anything different either.

Using a single big unit with loads of include files will not be a
problem for me as long as I can still keep information private to
specific classes. This will solve my issues regarding circular
references (an acceptable work-around).
