Most likely Jeppe sent the patch only to me, I have forwarded the patch 
to florian at freepascal.org so that you can get an idea on what he did.

Forgive me, I am a license dummy, can the licensing be handled properly 
with something like Jeppe's approach? If yes then I would love to 
maintain a repro of controller units, I can automagically generate 
Headers for most relevant microcontrollers currently available.
