Oh, excellent point ;-).

I added the following issue:
    <issue id="issue-require-type-match-for-in-out-parameters">
      <head>For a part to be an in/out parameter, the type must
match.</head>
      For a parameter to be considered in/out it must also be the case
      that the parts be of exactly the same type.
      <source>Jacek Kopecky</source>
    </issue>

Does anyone object to resolving this in the affirmative? Anything
else seems a bit crazy ;-).

Sanjiva.
