Maybe they should just call it quits on there compiler product, and at
the same time save themselves a boat load of cash and time, and simply
used FPC as their compiler, and then put their resources towards
building a cross-platform developer tool chain around the FPC compiler
(like IDE and GUI framework/bindings etc).  Oh wait, they are already
doing that for ARM.  ;-)

Makes you wonder, will they start submitting patches for FPC too?
