FWIW, If I ever need to use a GCD I will use your version, not the versions
in rational or pool. Thus, even if your GCD doesn't make it to replace the
other two versions, I still consider it a valuable tool in itself.

Since I don't see any immediate use for this myself, I haven't made the time
to check the latest release with Borland. But I'm sure that I won't find
anything that cannot be fixed (If there is anything to be fixed).
