[fpc-devel] Suggestion: reference counted objects

Ahh... the schizophrenic nature of Object Pascal :-D, I never understood why interface and class should be different at first place, considering that interface is practically nothing more than pure abstract class with ref. counting. Why the separated syntax etc. is beyond me... Surely helps with the language keyword pollution....

With best regards,

Coming from Java I could not even comprehend at the beginning that if variable type is interface - it is reference counted, but if variable type is a class that implements interface - it is not ?!
