Maybe not directly "dockable form" but tools/modules around (generally I
need fast generic hash maps).

fgl don't contains HashMap and is not automated/and simple in use like
Generics.* for any kind of type.

Both. It depends of code part. Interesting thing:
FreeSparta "Docked Form" installed in modified CodeTyphon works well with
CodeTyphon "Docked Form"...

Give me 24 hours, I'll do better patch. I can participate in practical
