There are weightings that allow getting Python, Java, C, and Delphi to
be "favored."  It wasn't clear that there was a way to get Perl and
Lisp to get to the top of the list.
(concatenate 'string "cbbrowne" "")
Strong language gets results.  "The  reloader is completely broken  in
242" will open  a lot more eyes than  "The reloader doesn't load files
with intermixed spaces, asterisks,  and <'s in   their names that  are
bigger than 64K".  You can always say the latter in a later paragraph.
