I asked about Lazarus on Mon, 1 Sep 2014.

Apparently winff uses it, and linking against OBS "... would mean, that
the whole project would have to be compiled against

Yes, having obsolete versions in packman is problematic, because it
means I can not do a zypper dup from packman, as I use Lazarus from OBS.
