This is good news.  What other measures do we have of improving
or flagging interest in Ada?

I was recently installing a system at a US Air Force base and
got several comments from both military and civilian personnel
wondering about whether Ada was going to survive or not.  Naturally,
I spent a few minutes pointing out how good Ada and particularly
Ada 95 is.  Pointing out that our system is 90% Ada (by weight,
not by volume ;-) also helps.
