No, I'm not sure (altho using Ada for high-reliability systems as done
so often in Europe made enough sense that I wouldn't have thought to
ask about "ADA").  Even if I had asked, clearly the search-firm person
(who has called me before about clients who need Ada programmers)
assumed it was "Ada the PL," so I know she would have said "YES"
and she still might have been wrong.
