I will certainly include the Delphi source in the release of v1.0.0 (when I've tidied it up sufficiently such that I won't be embarrassed to be associated with it...... ).

I think that there are only a few calls which are specific to Windows (process priority and file attributes from memory), so conversion shouldn't be too awful.
