Laying cards on the proverbial table, I don't think it was ever intended
to be Delphi. RemObjects developed the compiler completely outside of
Delphi for a number of years before the technology was licensed to
become Prism. Fact. IIRC, they billed "Chrome" (then Oxygen) as a
Pascal-like syntax refined for the .Net framework. It was the
Codegear/Embarcadero licensing that first created Delphi Prism.
The syntax that Prism uses is a lot cleaner in many respects -
especially removing the "procedure"/"function" conundrum and using
instead "method". However, in other ways it is horrible and so I can
also see why it is not something worth discussing further.
