[fpc-pascal] Does FPC 2.8.0 can actually still be called Pascal ?

I was going over the wiki and looked at
http://wiki.freepascal.org/FPC_New_Features_Trunk .
It looks like some of the features here, actually breaks Pascal, and
create something like Jascal or something, but it's not Pascal in
For example 1000.to_string ?! I have it on Ruby and Java, but it's not
Pascal syntax.
Same goes for array constructors.

I actually starting to ask the same questions of Graeme, do we really
want to follow Delphi instead of creating a more Pascal like dialect ?
