Well, that's probably true.  In this particular case, I remember the
GNAT documentation argues that the cost of this check is pretty high,
and the number of times it's likely to cause a problem is pretty low, so
the check is not high-value, but it is high cost.  Maybe someone at ACT
is listening and can comment?
