Here are my 0.02$ which need to be taken with a grain of salt since I am not so familiar with the
procedure call stuff.

I am fine with the need to unwrap to Hibernate specific classes. A dedicated getFunctionReturn
seems best imo. 

Do I understand correctly that I only need to use this, if I use named parameters? Or will I need to
revert to Hibernate specific types also when using positional parameters only?

I think I prefer query hints in this case. I think that's what they are for and I would
generally avoid not custom annotations.
