I think you are mistaken about my motivation:

I have no intention of stopping anyone. Go ahead.
On the contrary: in the end, you do introduce changes, I will even document them.

I don't believe  generics are the nec-plus-ultra of pascal (or any language). 
I documented them nonetheless (Sven: Ping ?)

But I do happen to think many of your arguments are pure bullshit and hype, and of no value whatsoever.
I just point that out. I would much prefer that you give REAL technological arguments for your changes.

I also explicitly said that these statements are my personal opinion.
So, we can at least agree to disagree, no ?
