Michael's notion of working behind the scenes as a
marriage broker is a pretty good one.  I have such
an effort quiely underway with a former member of
the Ada community who is now in the Microsoft stable.

In particular,  we are discussion the virtue of JGNAT
for some products that require JVM on Microsoft products
under development.  If anything comes of this, don't
expect a lot of publicity about it.  Nevertheless, we
can do our part, all of us, in quiet but effective ways
such as those already accomplished by Dr. Feldman and
others.
