If you have a jvm project with lots of code and now want to start using
this code in another regular mode objfpc unix/win32 application...

Sorry I'm not familiar with the jvm fpc project (I have been meaning to
try it).

Delphi has some similar issues with garbage collected iOS development
where they have provided some fake release/free system to try solve the
issue, which, has the side effect of making garbage collected programming
much like non garbage collected programming which in a way defeats the

i.e. if you have a fake free procedure that can be called, then why
