[fpc-pascal] Parameterless constructors are not allowed in records or record/type helpers

I never knew Pascal had default parameters, a feature I always use and enjoy in PHP. Once again I learn something new about the language I use. :)

However, the constructor with default params does not work. I get the same error as before. {$modeswitch advancedrecords} is on.

	MyRecord = record
		x: integer;
		constructor Foo (_x: integer = 0);
