 From where I sit, it beats patching a huge codebase that I know next to 
nothing about. Besides, my job is made easier by avoiding the gnarliest 
parts of the FPC RTL. No objects, no dynarrays, no RTTI, no exceptions, 
no Unicode. That's how easy (read: old-fashioned, almost Turbo 
Pascal-style) *my* codebase is. What's there not to love? :)

non-Thumb code generated by the compiler and converts it to Thumb: no. :P
