Yeah sure, and russian characters make killer smileys :)

The code for this program is in spanish because it is intended to be
used by researchers (basically it is an implementation of a method for
which there isn't any free implementation). The language choice is
only a matter of principles, it has nothing to do with any technical
reason, in fact I think spanish is a lousy language to use for coding
(it's too verbose and it's hard to get meaningful abbreviations).

I'd like to apologize to anyone that might have gotten offended by any
of my comments, it really wasn't my intention. It also wasn't my
intention to undermine the work of Lazarus' and fpc's developers. All
I can say is I'm sorry and thank you for providing us with a great
compiler and one of the very few integrated multi-platform free
(speech) RADs.
