Spoilt ballot paper here.  I would like to include Ada from scratch
but asking people to load the Ada tar ball, (it is not a complete
compiler, just a cut down static gcc-2.8), would be too much.

Ada is not a fun thing,  so unless you really want it to write an
encryption package, (what else?); or to gain the experience, and make
money; I cannot see much use for it.
