Whether or not it can be compiled is unrelated to the language of 
course, but to the compiler. We indeed only develop FPC for use with 
procedures that don't have an extreme size, because that way the 
compiler uses less memory and is faster. Since such massive routines are 
often indeed only present in case of machine-generated code, and since 
in that case you can usually easily adapt your generation to split up 
the code in multiple routines, there's not much incentive to change this 
(other than being able to say "yes, we can handle this").
