I've grown to like ObjFPC mode for understanding Pascal at a greater level but using
Delphi mode is a good idea with code coming from Delphi. Many of the objfpc mode
choices were made with Pascal philosophy in mind, whereas Delphi syntax is generally
getting lazier for programmers, while making some code less clear but
lazier to type on the keyboard.  For example the whole lack of @procedure
confuses me in Delphi - I find the @ helps jump out and let me know it's a procedure
in the code and makes code easier to read anyway.
