Sorry, this implementation must be rejected. The idea is good but it
must use the public interface in ComponentReg.
If the current interface is not enough, it can be extended.
I just did a big refactoring for separating the interface
(TBaseComponentPage, TBaseComponentPalette etc.) from the GUI
It is not ready and I am not sure if it even is worth the effort to
cut the inheritance completely. Now anyway there are no references to
GUI controls in the interface, but all relevant non-GUI stuff is
there, including property Selected: TRegisteredComponent.
All GUI controls are in the implementing classes.

My plan was to make a "PaletteViewer" interface which would initially
be implemented by TComponentPalette and TComponentList. Let's see if
it happens ...

If you modify / refactor your patch and break the TComponentPalette
dependency, I will be happy to apply it.
