Object class methods do have a self parameter. If an object has a vmt, 
the object class methods get this vmt pointer passed as self parameter. 
Otherwise they get nil as self parameter. Kylix does not support calling 
object class methods through tobjecttype.classmethod either, which is 
indeed kind of strange.

It is not possible to declare a non-static class method (in FPC, at 
least; Kylix does not support "advanced records", so I cannot test there).
