No, they don't and thanks for the detailed reply. Given Ada's problems
with gcc at various points over the years, I just wanted to make sure
there wasn't a new fundamental problem with Ada I wasn't aware of.

I'll wait for a bit after 10.1 is released and then use that as my new version.

Thanks (and thanks for your continued Ada support),
