Okay, thank you for that information (I have a little time with FPC).

BTW, the Graeme makes a wiki here
http://wiki.freepascal.org/Namespaces but there are no all ideas
discussed in the mailing-list.
I thought discuss all (good) ideas to put the winning idea on the Wiki.

But two people can think the same idea and help each other. However,
how they know about the ideas of other people? Writing yours thought
in the mailing list...


PS: Florian, I understand your side. Even if one idea is very good,
maybe can not be implement for many reasons.
