The reason standard Pascal isn't supported, has many causes
a) GPC already supports it in full
b) the original reason FPC was started, was because Borland didn't want
to make a 32bit Turbo Pascal. As such, FPC was initially aimed at people
who wanted a 32bit TP, not people who want to program in standard Pascal
c) no-one who works on the compiler is interested in writing standard
