What back then annoyed me more was the idea to based on Delphi and Kylix
sources (with obvious non-freeness and (very) Linux/x86 specific behaviour).
It scares me that sources are still not available, despite the
announcement. But at least they seem to support ARM, so they probably
cleansed the worst from the sources. But without sources that is hard to
tell. It might be an horrible ifdef mess in unit libc.
They also must have done something about the Delphi side of things seeing
