It's a ISO pascal feature that is a kind of open array construct where
you can pass non zero based arrays too. The limitation that dynamic/open
arrays are always zero based is a Delphi simplification.
It is more or less meant that if to judge the non zero array bounderies
features, you need to know the whole story.
