I really hoped, you would forget my note. 
Probably you know, what smart linking means and how smart linking
optimization is done in object pascal. In case of the LCL and especially its
interfaces this will lead to very in depth discussions of a lot of
functions. I think, such things should go to the devel list. I know from
experience that the needed changes will be discussed furiously. Marc will
not be amused and I'm no friend of such code as well.
