FPC will have the garbage collection, but the question remains what
happens in Delphi? Would delphi create a similar feature, but make it
incompatible with fpc? Once again we arrive at the issue of
standardization not being pascal's main advantage.... This will be an fpc
extension only?

Would be interesting to see if Embarcadero has even heard of such an idea
or plans to implement it (or already has something like it?). Would be
good to bring it up with them if not already, as many fpc users are also
delphi users. If a fpc user gets used to writing code a certain way in
fpc, it would be hard to port all that code to delphi.
