[Lazarus] Check if an abstract method is implemented or not

This is a clean solution. And as a matter of fact, the compiler does NOT
warn me while instantiate class with abstract method. This is different
than Java, in which you must implement all abstract method while inherits
from an abstract class.
Why I shall not instantiate a sub-class that has not fully implemented
abstract methods of its parent class?
