If the compiler accepts Abs(Variant), it should IMHO have a correct
overload for this.
(Maybe in the variants unit?)

I don't know how Delphi behaves, but the official Delphi docs state
that Abs() only has overloads for floats, integer and int64.
If their compiler behaves as the docs say, Abs(Variant) would be a syntax error.
I asked on Dutch Delphi forum if someone could test.
