Okay then, thanks Jonas.  I'm still pondering on the whole 'inline' 
thing, but at the very least I think I should develop a patch for {$mode 
delphi} so it behaves the same way in FPC as it does in Delphi when it 
that mode.  For FPC and inline, it's not so simple because so much stuff 
will break or at least change behaviour unexpectedly.
