I work with a project (Simba: http://wizzup.org/simba/) that was
written in FreePascal using Lazarus. One of the main issues with Simba
was the necessity of creating wrappers for most of what needed to be
accomplished. On a more personal note, I find Lazarus very useful for
quick GUI prototypes, but the lack of supporting infrastructure makes
it hard to use sometimes.

I appreciate the development that does take place and wish more could.
I have tried to find ways to help off and on, but all the problems
that are left are very involved.

A more impressive contribution to the list was planned but I forgot
what I was going to write. However, if you wanted to know if what you
do is useful, then yes, I think it is.
