It would of course be nice if Rose actually differentiated between Class and
Instance operations in diagrams. My UML book notes that there is a different
symbolism for Class operations than Instance operations, in the same way there
is a difference between Class (static) attributes and Instance attributes.
Perhaps my UML book is out of date, but we had a lot of hassle trying to get
Class operations from Rose/Ada until about 6 months ago when the
ImplicitParameter option DoNotCreate was incorporated into the Ada CG.
