I case you hadn't noticed, there was a major _difference_ in opionons
about how "software" was to be interpreted. The editorial
clarification in 2004-003 removed the confusion by avoiding the
ambiguous word "software", but that does in no way mean that the
ambiguity does not exist.

Henning Makholm                         "This imposes the restriction on any
                                  procedure statement that the kind and type
                             of each actual parameter be compatible with the
                       kind and type of the corresponding formal parameter."
