I think a winning approach would be to go easy on the Ada Advocacy and
heavy on the Product Advocacy.  If two successive columns take opposite
positions regarding which is the best Ada implementation for the JVM
it would make people think about which they favored, or what the question
was, and turn the Ada "sell" into a stealth "soft sell".
