One example, if the Tag is 64-bit and one set up the environment to cross-compile from 32-bit IDE to 64-bit, he or she even won't be able to change a 64-bit integer property in the designer.
That would not be an issue as Int64 is available under all flavors of FPC.
I don't see the hold up in adding a patch for Data field. There is just one unit to change. What makes this so complicated that it hasn't be accomplished yet???
