generally speaking, this is correct. OTOH many people want to port 
things with minimal effort, so compatiblity *is* important, and done in 
FPC, where possible.

The CVS version is quite outdated, but while my local version has some 
more features, other things are broken. Development will continue, but 
not within the next few weeks, as other things have to be done first. 
But I'm already planning the next new features and changes.
