Right, but that's no reason for not using packages somewhere else.
Delphi packages have been invented as an improvement of DLLs, to make
them type safe etc., and this idea can be used with shared libraries on
IMO the implementation of Delphi packages in FPC depends on two things:
the resources required for such an implementation, and the chance for
closed-source libraries. When we want to disallow or even discourage
closed-source FPC projects, I see no urgent need for implementing Delphi
