I do: it's more units that we have to maintain, process bug reports  
and feature requests for, etc (or, in case they are supposed to remain  
copies of the Lazarus units, then it's extra work keeping them in sync  
and given the non-synchronised release cycles, they will almost never  
be in sync). We already have plenty of work with our own code.
