Then we could start by immediately flagging all uses of "in" as 
deprecated, unless e.g. TP7 or Delphi mode is selected. When the users 
can demonstrate that they still need such a feature, we could think 
again about other (more compatible) solutions for not yet covered 
special cases, before dropping it from the FPC syntax.
