It has tu be duplicated in Lazarus anyway if you plan to use it in 
Sparta code. The same was with AdvancedIPC unit.

The problem is that it first comes to FPC trunk and then it takes some 
time until it appears in FPC stable. Lazarus should support 2 latest FPC 
stable releases. (Although external packages don't really have to.)

And then there is the problem with duplicate unit names. The Lazarus 
version of your units could e.g. use an extra namespace.
