[fpc-pascal] mode switch madness

I dunno about setting them globally, but generally I do find modeswitches
rather annoying, as the combination of features is pretty arbitrary, and
they mostly just *disallow* things that couldn't break the code of people
who weren't using those features to begin with if they were allowed.

E.G, I sincerely doubt that anybody has *ever* thought, "man, I sure am
glad that {$mode ObjFPC} does not allowed advanced records. It would be
specifically bad if it did!" because it just doesn't matter if they weren't
using advanced records to start with. It's just a lot of minor rules that
nobody can really explain but that tend to add up in relatively annoying
