Yes. Mostly.

More general advantage is that this feature might finally bring FreePascal back into league of languages having nice support for value types (as opposed to OOP atrocities). 
To put it in other words, functional style might become both feasible and sufficiently fast in FreePascal.

IMHO, that is one of the most valuable additions to the language in years.
