The idea of the mode was to support Delphi code as much as possible, yes,
but in the past years the Delphi language has turned more and more into a
butchering of the Object Pascal language, a butchering that we don't want
to continue to support.
If it means missing out on some users that might have chosen FPC then so be
it. There are enough people that either start with FPC without any Delphi
background or that move over from an older version of which we do support
the features.
