Ada imports and exports C pointers just fine, including pointers to
functions and records.
I should have been clearer. I meant passing pointers between non-C
languages is likely not possible.
We also suffer this problem in reverse: passing a pointer between two
C libraries is not possible in another non-C language. eg. Passing a
libvirt virDomainPtr from (Perl) Sys::Virt to Sys::Guestfs.
