The reason that it compiled in 1.0.4, was a bug in that version of the 
compiler. You can compile this code as-is in TP or Delphi mode. In FPC 
or ObjFPC mode, you have to add an "@" in front of the procedure names 
to get their addresses. In version 1.0.4, this extra @ in FPC mode was 
already enforced in normal code, but not in typed constants. This 
inconsistency was fixed in 1.0.6.
