There could be "native" Datatypes, that means data types that are  
compiled into fastest code by compiler (without size casting). An  
example is the PtrInt, but there should a more intuirive naming:
  - BestInt (integer in system size)
  - BestFloat (float that is calculated fastest)
  - BestString (String performed fastest on this architecture)

That would allow programmers to write efficient code without breaking  
old pascals datatype bandwith.
