Summary0014954: Add option to not create the project resource files
DescriptionI create a lot of demo programs, be to report bugs, be to demonstrate the components i develop, some of them i store in a svn server. In such programs is not necessary icons etc.

I'd like to have an option in the New dialog (Application page) to not include the project resource files (<project>.lrs, <project>.rc, <project>.manifest, <project>.ico) because this increase the file size to distribute (lrs is by far the biggest file of a small project) and somehow pollutes the file system.

In other words, i'd like to see an option to create the minimum build-able project (what was done before the project resources support implementation)

Currently this is the most annoying feature of Lazarus IDE for me. I use Lazarus IDE mostly for creating simple "free pascal" console applications or non-LCL apps, which do not require icons, manifest files etc like under Linux - I get pretty annoyed having to disable those every single time in the Project Option dialog. Shut down the IDE, delete those unnecessary files and then start the Lazarus IDE again.

Please make those "optional" in the Environment options, or only have them enabled for Lazarus LCL type applications.

The support for win like resources makes the things a lot better, fixing this issue IMO
