Can I use the SdpoSerial object without actually installing the
package into the Lazarus IDE?

Right now it looks like my biggest headaches are centered around the
rebuilding of Lazarus itself, which I really do not want to do.
The serial comm component is not a visual one so I really just need to
create it in code provided it is OK to do. But I want the tooltips
showing what properties and methods are available still...
