I wonder how FPC defines low() and high() for sets. The static bounds 
can be obtained from the underlying enumerated or subrange type, even in 
Delphi. So it would only make a difference, when FPC sets would track 
the actual (dynamic) first and last element in an set, with special 
handling for empty sets where both low() and high() cannot return valid
