I am happy to report that you are wrong. They are currently under discussion.
Some valid concerns were raised.
By the looks of it, they may be integrated before long.
Free Pascal is a team project.
This means you cannot expect to have all patches integrated here-and-now.
Specially when they are as invasive as yours.
You are in essence converting pascal to a C++ clone with this MO patch.
Is it so bad that this is discussed thoroughly first ?
I understand your youthful impatience, just have a little more patience :-)
