I've gotten many responses to this message, some only via direct responses
to me.  I appreciate all of these, and I've been tucking them away for

I've sent an email off to DISA, to the person the I&RTS states is the person
through whom comments and recommendations should be submitted, requesting
the proper procedure for submitting changes.  I've put it in terms of a
group of software development professionals wish to submit a change, so it
won't come across as the idea of just some wild-eyed software weenie :-)

Once I get the proper direction I'll put together the recommendation and
circulate it for comment (probably not via the whole mailing list, but just
to those who'd want to comment and sign on).

One other thing, the I&RTS bars not just Ada compiling to JBC, but also C++
and "other languages", and I have a vague recollection of hearing about an
Eiffel-to-Java compiler.  If anyone is familiar with other such compilers
outputting JBC and who might be interested in signing on to trying to excise
this unwarranted restriction, it would certainly help to broaden the support
beyond the Ada camp.

Thanks again.
