Since my intention was not so mutch to implement some standard but to
generate
resonable code out of UML which conforms to the style used within the
Ada 95
community.

These things are fine for me. But i am afraid, that the code generator
may promote
my personal view on several Ada95 implementation issues. I am not sure
if this should
become a part of the "product".
