I am pretty sure that changing the code generators would be much
more work. The partition of arguments into input, output and unused
args is pretty pervasive throughout the code generators. If you add
a top_in_out function symbol to the top_functor_mode type,
to represent arguments that have to passed by value-result,
you get error messages from 16 modules.
