Yes and no, that would be the last resort solution yes, but I think here
direct Delphi compat _and_ platform independance should weigh heavier than a
misplaced backwards compability for which we have no indications.

So my final opinion would be: change it in 2.2.2 in 1st half 2008, not in
2.6 in first half 2011 or so.
