Generally good advice, but I think it misses the thrust of his
question.  They currently have:

  - Ada 83
  - interface control tool

He's wanting to know, if they move to Ada 95, if they will be
able to replace the interface control tool with in-language
features (by doing some reworking of the package hierarchy).

Sure, the first step would be to just port the sources.

I don't know the answer, but it seems a reasonable question.
