I meant the loner label as relating to programming only. It is not 
necessarily a negative thing, more stating a close-to-a-fact, that he 
was not really a collaborative/team programmer

And no, I didn't know him personally.

I was referring more to the fact that he worked alone on most of his 
code. He was not a teamplayer. One does not exclude the other.

I wrote to the notice of him passing away that he did work hard on the 
2.2.0 objpas/classes rewrite (the component streaming)

Cheap and baseless dig.

There was communication too in the time he worked on component streaming 
in FPC. But that is something else from working in a team as more or 
less equals, without him specifying all the rules down to how symbols 
should be mangled (-ty). I never saw that, but maybe you can prove me wrong.
