RM A.1(37) has pragma Packed (String). This is missing at RM 3.6.3(4/2), where
type String is defined. This unfortunate omission has to be corrected.

****************************************************************

Editor's note: This has been true in every version of Ada I can find (and I
looked at Ada 83 and even Ada 80). So this cannot be very important to anyone,
since this is the first time that anyone has complained (30+ years later).
Moreover, Pack has no visible semantic effect for clients (the Packing aspect
can't be queried). Thus we conclude this isn't worth the effect to change.
