Hi all,

I would like an answer to the following as to why it wasn't considered
for
addition to the Ada standard:

Why didn't user-defined attribute functions (not 'Read and 'Write) get
incorporated into the standard.

Example:
  type An_Integer is range 0 .. 100;
  function An_Integer'New_Stuff (A : in Integer) return An_Integer;

Usage:
  A : An_Integer;
  B : An_Integer := An_Integer'New_Stuff (A);

Well you get the gist.....
