Maybe there should be an experimental annex for "Ada-with-GC", or
"high level Ada" or whatever. If it is too late to do that, perhaps
the Ada-Java product will become a de-facto "Ada-with-GC". In an
earlier message on this thread, Henry Baker suggested that Ada
standardize some sort of reflective low-level interface to storage, but
I don't understand what he means by this.

In any case, I would really like a GC-ed Ada. It seems like the only
computing community that is resisting GC is the "hard-real-time embedded
systems" world.
