CriticalSection function names differ from Delphi:

Delphi - FPC
InitializeCriticalSection <> InitCriticalSection
EnterCriticalSection "=" EnterCriticalsection
LeaveCriticalSection "=" LeaveCriticalsection
DeleteCriticalSection <> DoneCriticalsection

Is there any reason for it? Is there a will to rename them in order to
get Delphi-compatibility?

(+ FPC char case isn't consistent.)

The "Delphi" names are the names of the Windows API calls. You can also
use them in FPC to call the Windows APIs. The FPC names are the names of
cross-platform functions that are supported on all platforms.
