A non backwards compatible version of FPC would not be FPC.

If you want to discuss singular extensions of the language (in a backwards
compatible way that respects the spirit of the existing language) that can
be done, but I highly doubt that a complete remodelling of the language
just to satisfy the next hype language is in the interest of the other core
devs (it definitely isn't in mine).
