I'm in the process of moving ada-mode to Gnu ELPA. Currently ada-mode
4.1 is in trunk, and 5.1.4 is in Gnu ELPA. At some point, I plan to mark
ada-mode 4.1 obsolete, then later delete it.

I think it is more friendly to users to provide both versions for a
transition period, and in particular the automatic warning from
`make-obsolete' is helpful.

ada-mode 5 is a complete rewrite, so I skipped this for ada-mode.
