Okay.. The Dialogs is pointless. it serves no purpose as far as I can tell, 
Stdctrls is used by the generic drawtext I wrote because of 
DeleteAmpersands, this can be fixed by moving DeleteAmpersands to the 
generic interfaces code. Everythings else is pretty much all my fault. And I 
do not know how to fix it yet.

Basically the rest is used by my generic PromptUser & RequestInput forms. To 
make Message Dialogs Interface Dependent,  I copied the code from message 
dialogs into these routines so they could be overriden by interfaces, as I 
have started with GNOME, and planned on doing with Win32. But for the 
generic routines, I couldn't figure out how else to do them since the lower 
level functions I would have used on Win32 aren't available, so I have to 
use the LCL components directly just as in Dialogs, which of course create 
the loops. If you can figure out how to fix this please tell me! Its been 
bugging me since I did it, but I couldn't see any way around it, and still
