Thanks for sharing this info regarding macros. :-)

I've declared a macro trying to keep the Delphi syntax, so unfortunately I
can't declare it as _TIStringComparer_dot_Ordinal instead of
TIStringComparer.Ordinal, hence I've temporally declared it as:

class constructor TFoo.Bar;
begin
...
  GVariables := TDictionary<string, string>.Create(
{$IFDEF FPC}
    // see http://lists.freepascal.org/pipermail/fpc-pascal/2016-
August/048635.html
    TEqualityComparer<string>.Construct(EqualityComparison, ExtendedHasher)
{$ELSE}
    TIStringComparer.Ordinal
{$ENDIF});
end;

but I will remove the implementation above as soon as rtl-generics allow to
use TIStringComparer.Ordinal without workarounds.
