> Once upon a time there was a small kingdom ruled by a kind king. The king had two daughters and more children were planned to come. But the king had already problems to find approbiate rooms for his second child. So he ordered his mages to reconstruct the castle in a way that the ever-growing family can easily be accommodated.
> The mages immediately began with their work and reshaped the castle with their spells. But as the work on the castle neared its completion a terrible accident happend to the second princess when she played between the working mages. She was no longer able to walk or even sit upright without support. The mages tried their best to heal her, but in the end they needed to finish the castle so that the royal family could have their home back before the winter strikes. But even after the castle had been finished they didn't have enough time for the disabled princess as the family had already grown during the mages' work and required their full attention. And so the days and months passed by in which the second daughter of the king was confined to her room and could not join in the family's activities.
> Then one day a young mage came along and joined the mages of the castle. He helped them with maintaining the magically enhanced castle, but while searching for places to fix and further extend he stumpled upon the room of the isolated princess. He felt sorry for the girl's state and although he did not know much about healing magic he decided to improve his knowledge and help the her. So he spent the evenings after his normal work at the castle in the library and looked through the books about healing magic. Sometimes he then went to the princess' chamber and applied his newly learned knowledge.
> After some weeks his work finally paid off and the girl was able to feel and move her legs again. And after some more time she was finally able to walk again. Although she needed to move slowly and with the help of crutches, she was finally able to take part in the life at the castle again. The young mage continued to heal her and they all lived happily ever after.

I guess it's about one of the branches at http://svn.freepascal.org/svn/fpc/branches/ that was abandoned in a half-working state by two (core) developers and that you now fixed, but I have no idea about which one :)
