Maybe it would indeed make more sense to adjust the meaning of the
typehelpers modeswitch in mode Delphi... Namely that it enabled the "type
helper" syntax including the inheritance. But the record helpers are left
as is... (btw: a type helper for a primitive type can inherit from a record
helper of the same type, internally they're all the same)

This way we won't need a new modeswitch...
