I think you mean that it is all *you* need. There are plenty of people 
who use other modes (most notably, we do so ourselves in most of the 
RTL). And while you may think the way FPC handles certain things is 
ugly, I feel the same about other things in Delphi, TP, e.g. procvars. 

   p: procedure;
  p1: pointer;

  p1 := @@p;

is completely ridiculous code... And it makes a statement such as 
"p1 := @p" impossible to understand, unless you know whether p is a 
"normal" variable or a procvar.
