Which is why I suggested that a semi-formal way of taking disputes to it 
might be in order, /provided/ that the results were summarised for the 
public. I don't think that public name-calling is at all in the interest 
of the community of Object Pascal users as a whole, and note that I'm 
including both the dwindling band of classic Borland customers and the 
users of FPC and Lazarus in this.

Graeme, if you don't like it then consider forking the project. However, 
I'd suggest that if you even start along that path the prerequisite is 
better documentation, and to get anywhere with that you'll need to work 
cordially with the existing developers for the foreseeable future. Which 
is something that, frankly, I think you find difficult.
