I do not ask for my own solutions, I ask to move private FPC class fields and 
methods of base classes which are used in different toolkits to protected in 
order to make them more flexible without changing any functionality and 
because the current workaround with cracker classes may be not possible 
anymore in future because of upcoming FPC optimisations.
