[fpc-pascal] for loop vs while loop

Just a note - I learned that for very short "for" loops it may be even a bit
faster to count downwards (to zero) rather than upwards if possible, because
the comparison to zero is very effiicient. Not sure though whether that
still makes a difference on modern processors.
