If I remember right, there was a message nearly a year ago stating that
the Booch Components in Ada were fewer SLOC than those in C++.  Add the
(possibly?) facts of Ada's superior performance, reliability, etc. and you
have something worthwhile.  Maybe not a "killer app" but certainly
something useful.

Would it be feasible to create C++, Java, C, etc. bindings to the Ada
Booch Components and "market" that as not merely a cute demo of Ada, but a
demo that is actually useful?

How does the object size, compile time, and execution efficiency compare?
