One can't expect to be at a company forever.  Not any more.  If, when laid
off, there are 0 - 1 Ada jobs within 25 miles, 50 newly unemployed Ada
programmers contending for it, and 40 - 100 C++ jobs, what langauge would
you want to be skilled in then?

Calling Mayflower Van Lines to retain an Ada outlook on life is an expensive
and often unpleasant option.

(A worse problem is people who know better, but select C++ or Java where
they are not appropriate because getting the "right" things on their
resumes is more important than the success of the project.)
