Excellent. :-)  Could you pass on those changes to extrafpc.cfg, so I
can add it in.

A few others have suggested this to me as well, but that's up to the
Lazarus developers and how quickly we can get LCL-fpGUI implemented
and stable.  The huge benefit of LCL-fpGUI will be bug fixing and
feature support. No need to limit the widget set to a specific version
of the GUI toolkit. Plus if there is a bug or some implementation
difference in fpGUI it could easily be tweaked, whereas with GTK2, Qt
etc you are out of luck.
