Unless I have misunderstood all suggestions concerning this is to
actually modify the IDE (Lazarus) for the specific project while it is
being worked on. By modify I mean changing package locations for
Lazarus etc.
But then one cannot easily switch between different projects and we
tend to have multiple projects going on at the same time including
supprt ones (those are the ones back in time). Normally we do some
stuff then ask the customer a question, immediately switch to the main
task and work there while the customer responds.

But agin, I don't want to prolong this, I think I know enough now and
my conclusion is that we will start without using packages to see if
we are otherwise comfortable with FPC/Lazarus.
