        Yes, that computes.  I now remember further that the guy I talked to
        the SEI said his company had also done the French line.

        I have in front of me (taken from the SIGAda booth at OOPSLA'99
        yesterday) the very brief, half-page Ada Success Story titled "Ada
        in the Paris METRO System."  It seems to name GEC-Alsthom as the
        contractor and Matra Transport "for the automatic systems."  I
        we're trying to track down the latter.  It says "For further info,"
        contact Alsys World Dialogue in San Diego.  This was a reprint from
        "Alsys World Dialog," Spring 1994, Vol.8, No. 1.  Presumably this is
        Aonix, and that they are now using ObjectAda is as good a guess as
        BEN?   Anyone else from Aonix?   -hh
