Certainly, but there is always scope for improvements right? eg: Delphi 
is well know for generating more optimised ASM than FPC. I'm by no means 
saying that it is easy, I'm just saying that in the long run it is 
easier to maintain Object Pascal code [in the case of IntToStr and 
similar functions], than ASM code. Not to forget the fact that such 
Object Pascal implementations are much more portable.
