I agree it looks sloppy. Something else that has bothered me, but a
lot less, is the conflicting naming standards.

E.g. Contnrs "should" really be Containers, more like Delphi; the
former is more of a C style that you find when everything is lower
case and abbreviated, which is not really the style I see most Object
Pascal programmers adopt.

I apologize for the unwarranted opinion, but it had been bothering me
for a while.
