I've also had the same stray thought and I've also thought about doing it
slowly as a leisure activity. (Go figure!)

The biggest problem I see is not the work to do it but that a quality
Object Pascal compiler only exists on Win32 platforms. This would limit the
server platform choice severely and would make the effort much less
valuable, even not valuable at all since I want off Win32 ASAP. Of course,
once Kylix comes out and has a chance to reach version 2 or 3 then you are
talking another situation...
