I've had some email with Jens about the Borland compiler. He is aware of
the problems caused by compiler bugs, but hasn't had time to figure out

I'm really hoping he will do some work on documentation (to reflect the new
interface) before spending any time on broken compilers.

That doesn't really answer your question, but perhaps it help a bit.
