[fpc-devel] Should TAutoIncField be read only?

Until a few moments ago i would say yes because it seems logical and fpc
raises an exception when trying to set the value programatically.
But while investigating why TAutoIncField.ReadOnly always returns false,
i found that, regardless of FReadOnly being set to true in the
constructor, this value is overriden in TFieldDef.CreateField throung
So i tested in Delphi (TClientDatset and TDbf) and found that
TAutoIncField.ReadOnly is false (like fpc).
So what should fpc do:
- Follow delphi behavior and let TAutoIncField.ReadOnly return False?
- Fix TAutoIncField.ReadOnly to return True?
