Using the Generics.Collections does not impose the use of {$MODE GenPas}.

I am working on set of MODESWITCHs. As mentioned above in my previous e-mail
 I mean more functional programming with less syntax. Evolution for better
usage of Generics.Collections (like smart pointers).

Even smart pointers will be available in any other mode. In {$MODE GenPas}
will be available additional syntax inspired by Oxygene dialect, dedicated
for smart pointers:
