For those of us that haven't read the ISO spec of Pascal, what feature 
of  Pascal from there currently unsupported would be nice to have?
There's nothing that I myself miss on it, except for the ability to 
create 16-bit realmode DOS code, which seems to be considered beyond any 
possibility, because of the way pointers are handled (4 bits, always 
32-bit offset).
