Wouldn't shelling out to the compiler make it easier to integrate new compilers?  Would the average developer be willing to rebuild Lazarus in order to incorporate a bugfix for FPC?  Also, would it be easier or harder to do cross platform development with an integrated compiler? (I know, that is for later)
