Any FPC developer willing to comment on the status of some of these
issues (that have been years overdue)?

It seems to me, main target of FPC development today is compatibility to
the "modern" Delphi language constructs, I don't want to go this
route.And we need more flexibility, I can't fight days or weeks with
Michael and Marco for every little change which is not on Lazarus or
their own benefit.Ouh, and there still is no unicode support for
resource strings, no official statement how unicode will be implemented
in RTL, the compiler becomes slower and slower, smart linking MSEide on
64 bit Linux is not possible with 2GB ram, still no Delphi-like packages...
