Just because something is 20+ years old doesn't necessarily make it bad. 
That syntax looks OK to me (i.e. make a and b look like consts) but I 
also find myself wondering what the type rules are, i.e.

with pod: TTabSheet= Pages.Objects[deleteAt] do


with pod= TTabSheet(Pages.Objects[deleteAt]) do
