#FreePascal as an embedded language in Firebird: possible and desirable?

Hi FreePascal and Firebird people here is my question
Cross-posted to the freepascal list and Firebird Development mailing lists

Would it be possible and desirable to have FreePascal as an embedded
stored procedure/trigger language in some future release of Firebird? (I
can’t recall this having been brought up before, so I just start the
ball rolling).

#Lazarus (Free #pascal IDE) 0.9.28 has been released

vsnijders just announced version 0.9.28 of Lazarus on

The major changes are as follows:

In this major release, the IDE has many source editor improvements like display
of “double width” fonts (such as Eastern, Japanese, Chinese, and Arabic), better
code folding, highlighting, syncro editing, and persistent blocks. The debugger
has assembler windows, easier exception handling, and breakpoint properties. The
LCL now uses GTK2 as the default widgetset on Linux and BSD and includes the
TMonitor class for multi-monitor support. Refactoring of LCL reduced the minimum
size of executables by about 15%. The support of TFrame support has improved, so
you can visually nest designers in the IDE.
