Pascal is a language where declaration and use of variables is separated.
It makes it easy to see what variables are declared and what type they are.
Inline variables mess this up as a variable can be declared somewhere
inside the code.
I use C++ to earn my living. I know why I'm not a fan of inline variables
as I've been biten by them often enough already.
