Full Circle:  The free Java Developers Kit comes with a Classes.zip file
              that is 9 megabytes. Could we please have those classes in
              Ada-95? It also comes with fonts and sample programs for
              distributing data and processing across the Net.

How can I CONTRIBUTE in helping you make this large delivery this Fall?

Why could there not be a single standardized library of data structures
and Net and Gui interfaces that were common to C, C++, Java, and Ada-95?
