This brings up an issue discussed on borland.public.kylix.non-technical.
Since Borland bought part of Troll Tech, "Kylix Delphi" will have no charge
for an expensive Qt Commercial License, on any platform.  If I write
commercial Qt apps with Lazarus, I will have a $1500 license to pay.  And
since I'll be writing KDE stuff, there goes any price advantage Lazarus may
have had.

Good, Interbase is probably all I will need for a while, especially since it
is going open source...

I mean using a custom segment (feature of the ELF executable format) for
resources.  I thought this was how fpc might do resources in the exe.
