Define "language-neutral."  Rose's representations are clearly "C++
influenced".  And the code generation only generates the easy parts--
you still have to write the logic yourself.  (Teamwork/Ada is the same).
If reverse engineering works (BIG IF) you might get a usable model with
C++ logic in text objects which get pasted into the appropriate (hopefully)
places in the generated Ada skeletons.

And don't even ask me how much fun it is to fight Rose's user interface!
