the answer is simple. Project should not be bound to any IDE. So it's
easily portable, from compiler-to-compiler.
Currently the only thing binding a project ot Lazarus is .lpi file.
That's used only to keep the search path list, this makes the project
easily switchable to Delphi. Infact the project is built in both
Lazarus and Delphi. No lazarus or delphi packages are used only the
sources, filled with all possible .dcu, .o, .ppu, .bak files :)  But
it's not a problem at all.

But first it's necessary to overcome a lazyness and to learn about
Project templates... It's too hard :)
