I get the impression that you think I was suggesting
that Java might be better than Ada for this. I wasn't.
I was suggesting that something similar could be done
in _just_ a few hundred lines of Ada. Of course the
_same_ API calls can be made if you use Cafe1815
(just as easily as Java, once I finish grinder).
