Ok. But is this will be "corrected" in the next version? Because if
won't, I can not see sense to use it.
The structure that does same but does not have this problem is the
object type. But is it used yet? I think Delphi make it deprecated,

Talking about Delphi, it has the same problem with warnings on records?
