At this point, that would be me (hand held high).  If I'm writing an Ada
program (which I don't do much of anymore) I'm probably solving some
text-processing problem that exceeds my limited knowledge of awk or tcl.
Now, it used-to-was that I was spending trench time debugging real-time
embedded control systems; or training programmers to do (mostly) the same.
I just like Ada as what it is to me, a general purpose modular programming
