panos said that they were going to rewrite their system
anyway, and language choice came up in that context.
However, Todd still has a good point. If your Fortran
compiler links with an Ada 95 compiler, you can incrementally
re-implement your system in Ada, using the old Fortran code to
support new subsystems for pre-integration testing. The Ada 95
interface to Fortran should support this partial replacement
Of course, how useful this would be depends on how radically
you intend to change your system.
 Sorry, I don't recall his name.
