I have noticed this a year or so ago as well, but never reported it.
Now it bugs me again.  :)

Exactly, and if you don't use Lazarus to compile the program (eg: via
command line), this could cause problems as well I think. If the
package (*.lpk) file is not located in the normal source code
directories, the compiler will not find the package unit.

Can we please remove that unit from the uses clause? Lazarus I believe
is intelligent enough to know the required package from the .lps or
.lpi files and where it is located.
