I wouldn't include products (such as XinAda and Topgraph'X) primarly aimed at Ada
programmers as "Ada applications". Tools for Ada programmers are unlikely to
demonstrate that real applications are built with Ada.  Of course, the availability of
tools is an important consideration, so that is also a (different) issue.

If we're including tools, Claw should be included, as it is an Ada 95 Windows interface
similar to MFC (Microsoft Foundation Classes). In addition, the Claw GUI Builder is
a Claw application - it is 100% Ada 95.  (As I told people at SigAda '98, the builder
has no C++, no Visual Basic, no Delphi, no Java, no junk!)
