What is the difference from CoreText or (not my choice) Core_Text?
Can I do this

instead of

   Core.Text.Parser, Core.Text.XML, Core.Text.json, Core.Text.UTF8;

IF not then I'm against using dots in filenames, there is no value in 
dots when camel case does the same job with less typing.

as we are on the theme of "not do" also consider removing the fp prefix 
from all rtl functions and through away the ridiculous use of inc file 
instead of pas.
