[fpc-pascal] TBufDataset vs TClientDataset

I read a couple of archived mailing list posts about TBufDataset, which 
from what I read is FPC's equivalent to TClientDataset.

That then begs the question... Why isn't it called TClientDataset in 
FPC? What happened to Delphi-compatibility?

Also, what's the difference between TBufDataset and TMemDataset? Aren't 
they both in-memory datasets? If so, why do we have two different 
components for the same thing?
