Sounds good to me. What I would really like to use is some sort of
multiple inheritance (yes, the bad word ;). But I really do not expect
to see java interfaces in fpc because the main goal is delphi
compatibility, I think.

Okay, I'll look at it. My next question would have been how
fpc/NOT(Windows) would benefit from this technique, but I'll see. :)

Thank you both,
