  5) The original message implied that an Ada-output option for the
  code-generator is planned but not yet available.  If you are willing and
  able to do (1) or (2), you could probably make a deal with the vendor to
  work together on an Ada-generator.  This would give you access to
  information that would make it easier, and when finished, you would have
  vendor support in addition to your own knowledge.
