Sorry, but it seems that there is a very steep learning curve even for
former (Turbo..) Pascal programmers.
I have to learn a lot just to be able to program with Lazarus. It seems
to be for long term nerds only.
It has become nearly as complicated as C and relatives.

Shouldn't these dependencies somehow be handled by the compiler/linker?
Why is the programmer bothered with it? There could be a default
"implementation" that would be used in these cases. Now the programmer
has to investigate in the concept *and* how Lazarus/FPC handles it. Not
