[fpc-pascal] Dynamic array as return type of functions

I tried to write some function that returned a dynamic array, and  
realized that this isn't allowed. Why? After all one can specify an  
array of variable length as type for variables... Furthermore - if  
I'm not mistaken - a dynamic array is implemented internally as a  
pointer, and so there wouldn't be any runtime overhead for returning  
a dynamic array from a  function.
