They are not compatible with my existing code.

LCL-fpgui could be a solution, but then the entire UI turns non-native
in Mac for example. I want to merge native and non-native pieces,
choosing between them occording to the project's needs. It could be
interresting to find an way to plug-in fpgui controls, but for the
simple controls that I currently require: buttons, track bar, group
box; it is easier and more reliable to roll my own.

Also, this idea is nothing new, wxWidgets also has both: custom drawn
and native versions of controls. They call this wxUniversal as far as
I remember.
