yes but not with *generic* objects. I find it very hard to understand why this is being blocked for objects. Without this there is no way to have *generic* record inheritance in Pascal. Is this seen as a problem or something that people would make a generic inheritable record type? Without this we have stupid things like having to reimplement TVec2<T>, TVec3<T>, TVec4<T> etc... because we can't simply inherit from the previous type.
