Well, from fpc-devel list perspective your only hope is that any new
feature is added via MODESWITCH. Thus any existing unit would be kept
clean. You would also be able to keep your libraries clean, by not allowing
using of a certain modeswitches.

However, if you look at the recent (for the past few months) discussions,
you might spot that the number of requests for new features (from recent
Delphi and other languages) is growing. Constantly.

In this particular case it's even worse (actually it's better, from
fpc-devel POV), since the patch has been provided.

The next step would probably be controlled "break", where a user would be
able to specify how many nested loops needed to broken from.
