Wojtek's post suggests another idea.  Suppose
someone or some group were to take Apache,
and one module at a time, replace the modules
with Ada.

If they could catch up to and pass Apache (which has
a long head start) that would be strong evidence of
Ada's power.

Maybe do the same thing with Ant (which does not have
as much of a head start).
