+GIven Pascal's note on this issue, it seems good for me for
+compilers to adopt a similar strategy on the transiition, so
+following what I said before, I did implement a general
+mechanism to label declarations as Ada 2005 (with a pragma),
+and any use of any of these in Ada 95 mode will generate a
+warning (which we could decide should be an error later if
+we want). Easy enough to do, and can only be helpful in
+maintaining compatibility between different vendors compilers.
