oh, give him a little slack.  it might be true that the computer science
department at his university isn't exactly the best one in Sweden (hardly
his fault), but he has a point there: Ada wasn't just designed once, but
twice.

unlike e.g. Scheme, which we all know was discovered, not designed.

(and we all know that the van Rossum's don't know anything about
design ;-)
