Another variation which could be interesting for concurrency started as a
joke.  Someone has collected programs for generating "99 bottles of beer on
the wall" in over 200 languages.  For Ada, they not only have the straight

starting different customers over time. I'll try to dig up the URL if
anyone's interested.
