on a only somewhat related note... is anyone aware of a restricted runtime
environment (for Windows NT) that doesn't have dependencies on userland
libraries (msvcrt, threading)?

Background is that we have code that needs to run as kernel modules/kernel
dlls/device drivers under Windows NT/2000/XP. Using pragma no_run_time is a
bit harsh in its restrictions and leads to code that is less than perfectly
readable (e.g. with regard to technically unconstrained arays).

So -- is anyone present or aware of folks that have developed device
drivers in Ada under Windows and maybe have a neutered GNULL
implementation? Long shot, I know.
