I wouldn't even know why that would even be used.

It would make it easy to convert large pascal code.

Maybe it's also a side-effect of the GNU Pascal compiler?  I.e. if
your backend doesn't support that feature, you can't really support
Pascal either.

It is not a side effect of the Pascal compiler. The Pascal and Ada compilers are a side effect of nested functions in GNU C :-)

The mere availablity of nested functions in GNU C made it possible to base GNU compilers for Ada and Pascal on the existing GNU C compiler.

If that's the case, does the fact that nested functions don't seem to work for the AVR (according to Björn's view of working with the test suite) affect how AVR-Ada will behave? Will there be problems?
