Its got nothing to do with the latex package. Trying to describe the
inconsistent syntax of Hint Directives in a syntax diagram (like used
in the FPC Language Reference doc) just seems impossible. From what I
can conclude, you need to have something like a "if xxx then yyy"
meaning you will have a couple of diagrams say the syntax is like XXX,
BUT it is also like YYY, BUT you also get ZZZ... bla, bla. Do you guys
not see the issue?

So I guess the bottom line is, if you guys are given a patch that
*fixes* the syntax for ObjFPC mode, would such a patch be accepted?
