Currently the ICS suite for Delphi more or less is compilable, but doesn't
run very well due to problems with threading (making the RTL threadsafe is
an ongoing effort)

All 4 are possible. A 5th one: check out www.openxp.de They are building a
mail/fido/newsreader in FPC

Only the contributed units pages on the FPC server. Some other website
might point to a few FPC packages, but afaik the only large link base is the
contributed units page.
