compiler directives for any Delphi version

compiler directives for any Delphi version

(OP)
Hi.

I want to make my code work in any Delphi version.
For this I use compiler directives. But the compiler is still not happy 100%.

CODE

{$IF Defined(Ver80) or
   Defined(Ver90) or
   Defined(Ver100) or
   Defined(Ver120) or
   Defined(Ver130) or
   Defined(Ver140) or
   Defined(Ver150) or
   Defined(Ver160) or
   Defined(Ver170) or
   Defined(Ver180) or
   Defined(Ver185) or
   Defined(Ver190)}
{$ELSE}
{$DEFINE ALREADY_UNICODE}
{$IFEND}

{$IF NOT DEFINED(ALREADY_UNICODE)}

//some Unicode functions/procedures for old Delphi versions

{$IFEND} 

XE5 compiler is keep warning me about {$IFEND}. It wants {$ENDIF} or {$LEGACYIFEND ON}.
But {$ENDIF} and {$LEGACYIFEND ON} are not accepted by older versions.

What can I do?
Thank you.

Regards,
David

{$ENDIF} is accepted on Delphi 3, btw.
