You may so add.   In its earliest versions, that model did have some problems.
With Ada 95 and Ada 2000, that model has improved greatly and is now one
of the best you can find.

Be aware, though, that Jean Ichbiah did not invent that model "from scratch."
Important contributions from Dijkstra, Hoare, Per-Brinch Hansen, and many
others preceded  and informed it.   It is not a purely French invention.
