I can't remember refusing code. I can remember refusing some sub 10 lines
patches where he renamed generic vars (that were delphi compatible) to
something else to free up the generic vars for fpgui. (although Graeme spun
it more like "for all the others").

I think it is ridiculous to break Delphi compat for code that mostly still
needs to be implemented, and can easily use some other var or name.
