@Michal, @Marco

Right, I will start from set of MODESWITCHs.

> Modern is a very vague term, and more a matter of taste.

But what does it actually prohibit ?  Not agreeing with Delphi design

choices is as old as Delphi itself.

Subjective matter. Modern maybe is not proper definition. I mean more
functional programming with less syntax. Evolution for better usage of

IMO ObjFPC is more classic, Oxygene is modern, Delphi after XE2 is crap :)

{$mode YAMPD} - Yet Another Modern Pascal Dialect ?

Not bad, but I really like {$MODE GenPas} proposed by Michael. Acronym from
Generic Pascal ^^ sounds good. Eventually {$mode YAMMGPDWSP} - Yet Another
More Modern Generic Pascal Dialect With Smart Pointers.

best regards,
Maciej Izak
