I requested this a week earlier, but that thread got sidetracked and I
never got an answer. So I thought I would make it easier by testing what
patches need to be applied, but if I'm too late... oh well.

I have to disagree here. :) Interfaces have been implemented years ago, but
some things were broken for so long, you might be forgiven for thinking
it's a new feature instead of a bug fix.

Anyway, I was hoping to get this in the next FPC release because I want to
implement something major in fpGUI that requires this. If not 2.4.2, I will
have to delay this feature in fpGUI too. What is the expected (I know it
might be a guess) release time for 2.4.4?

Alternatively, I guess I will have to end up doing what Martin does with
MSEgui (though definitely not ideal). MSEgui includes patches for FPC which
must be applied before MSEgui will work correctly.
