ICS is D1..D6/7 compatible....

Slowly the compiler isn't the problem anymore, at least if you use 1.1.

The remaining problems are simply missing the VCL etc, not something FPC

The problem is that there simply is little non visual Delphi code.

Some pkgs tested:
- Marcel v Brakel 10MB of Windows headers. (in CVS projects/contrib)
- Synapse (there has been discussion about that too. Also in CVS)
- Michael is working on some turbopower stuff.
- Decal should also be possible (some STL like library)
- Some parts of the Jedi JCL maybe.
- I played with some SQL parser from Source Forge.

The ultimate goal of course is to get the Delphi Quake II port running under
