What is needed here is a chart explaining what the options are and the use
cases where they apply. This is an area most developers don't understand
their code breaks in some way. Without use cases simply quoting standards
and how this or that library or API does this or that won't be of any help.

A chart explaining where they have gone wrong and what options should apply
will be more useful than repeated arguments about what is wrong or what
right or wrong paths FPC, Lazarus, Delphi or Microsoft have taken.

The experts in this area will have to switch to educator mode rather from
developer mode if these arguments are going to end.
