What is wrong with the pascal category
Do we really want a third category to  further delute the number of apps 
over more categories.

I just checked and right now there is Delphi/Kylix and Pascal.
Why wouldn't we want to use Pascal for FPC apps? Isn't FPC, in a certain 
way, the standard for Pascal right now?

There are 186 apps under the Pascal category and 76 under the Delphi 
category. Given so few apps I am not sure how it would help to have a third.
Also, if the new category was created I am certain people would likely still 
add the 'Pascal' tag.. so then you will likely have most apps listed on 

I really don't see what advantage the new category would bring.
