There is no Modula2 mode. There is an Objective-Pascal mode, but no  
Objective-C mode.

Units compiled in different dialects can indeed be mixed in the same

No, it is much more limited. And of course, .NET/CIL can also be  
statically compiled to machine code.

You can perfectly use a library compiled with gcc in a gpc-compiled  
program. You just have to translate the headers. Just like in case of  
e.g. Objective-Pascal, you have to translate the Objective-C headers  
to Objective-Pascal before you can use the library/framework for which  
these headers have been written.
