No, I used v1. I looked at how much work a backport to D5 would be. Mostly
it was routines missing from the Delphi RTL until you got into the whole
RTTI debarcle. Needless to say I gave up.

Never used that patter but have used those patterns to achieve the same
result. However, it's pnly viable for new projects, and those are not
generally in Delphi here anymore. Useful for my own work though I guess.

If you've never looked at Instant Objects it is worthwhile. Far, far simpler
to get in to than tiOPF. Only Win32 though AFAIAA.

Very useful to know. Thank you!
