So what is the difference between "registering files" and "importing
subsystems/views" from an Ada source code perspective? Very little it would
seems. I haven't used Apex, but how does it handle multi-compilation unit files?
Does it have the same restrictions as GNAT (i.e. one compilation unit per file)?

If this is true, then I would guess that the Apex mechanism is not that
different to the ada-mode mechanisms for Projects using Emacs and GNAT.
