This is a wiki, so do it the way you want.

Personnaly for the Delphi/Pascal section i haven't followed any 
previous model (except for the `pascal way` or the D way`) but 
i've rather choosen to focus on ambiguities and similarities...

Just do it and if someone comes with a better solution he can 
delete everything. It'a wiki.
