I was again'st this idea earlier last night (uh..well 3AM :) but i slept
on it, and the idea is slowly starting to grow on me.  When you consider
how much bandwidth we can save, which is generally just a waste, it's a
fairly good idea, imho.

The only other language that gets used at all, in my experience, is
obj-c that few ppl will recompile and install gcc for some parts of
gnome to get a "comple desktop environment".

Dunno, that's my vote.  I stand behind MSB on the ada viewpoint.
