Why are sets by default aligned to their own size? Seems a bit excessive.
The 2.6.x series does too though, so I thought I'd ask about the reasons.

(The size of 

 TSomerecord = record
                   x : byte;
                   s : set of byte;

is 64-byte), iow 31-bytes of alignment are inserted?
