Of course, but I don't think you mean mean the projects have to merge, it just means the
advertising has to merge (cross-advertise each other more).. I'm sure the FPC team doesn't
want to merge with lazarus? Just change the marketing/advertising tactics right?

i.e. maybe in big bold font on the FPC website:
"Lazarus is the major IDE that uses FPC" or something similar.

In an FAQ section:

 What is FPC exactly, and what is lazarus?

 If you come from a delphi background, consider FPC like DCC. FPC is not an IDE, just like
DCC is not an IDE.

 What is DCC, I don't know what that stands for?

 That is the compiler that powers the Delphi IDE.
