Definitely. I was surprised when I found out that this works (it had been
added sometime in the far past to simplyfy porting of C code) and nowadays
it hunts me, because it makes my (FPC programming) life so much more
complicated -.-

doing it (... Integer>>) possible in $mode delphi? =)

Should be doable, especially since they aren't Delphi compatible anyway. At
least it would be simpler to disallow "<<" and ">>" as alternatives for
"shl" and "shr" respectively in selected modes than to work around it
