I agree with Tuck. I can take another example from NPL. We use
LabView a lot since it provides 90% of the application as COTS
in effect by providing device drivers and use interface code
for control of instruments. I would not dream of attempting to
convert them to Ada *unless* the volume of code to be written
by them was much larger than is typically the case. We must
not over-sell Ada.
Brian.
