[fpc-pascal] alternative source format

the problem is that IDEs like FP and others have no exact
place where to store compiler configuration switches and
other program (project) related info. For examle if user set
switches in FP, they effect all opened units, so there is no
possibility to configure each unit differently if you do not use
directives. That is problem for less experienced users, like students.
I want to propose an idea of implementation alternative
source format able to carry all additional information.
This can be open format realized using xml. It will not make problems
with conversion to native "pas" format. Additional argument that FPC
will support UTF-8 soon.
Something like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<switches target="debug">-viewh -g -Cotir -Sd</switches>
<switches target="release">-viewh -O2 -Sd</switches>
<todo>There is nothing to do</todo>
What do you think about this?
