After beginning to use Lazarus more and more I there a few things I want to write about. I can't say I have studied its workings well enough, or asked around enough. Perhaps there are solutions to the issues, or there are reasons for their being the way they are, but I feel I must raise them all the same. I am welcome to any corrections or criticisms.
Does new FCL functionality need to depend on 2.5.1 compiler or LCL/IDE features?
The first point I want to raise is the matter of the FCL, the LCL and the Lazarus IDE.
