You're, of course, right.

But, never mind the question of which part of what team will maintain it 
(and what triggers a maintenance request, other than a long 
after-the-fact bug report), how do you make sure that --at any moment in 
time-- fcl-passrc is up-to-date?

I mean, suppose --using fcl-passrc-- we went through all the publicly 
available code (repositories of FPC, Lazarus, etc.) and it reported no 
errors, would it prove/guarantee that fcl-passrc is up-to-date?

If we could say that with enouh conjfidence, I'd gladly shift my focus 
to fcl-passrc.

Naturally <g> I know nothing about the importance of heap especially in 
this context or probbaly in any relevant context.

How hard would it be?
