Well, I tried sending this via email, but I can't derive a valid
address from Paul's anti-spammed address.
My apologies to the rest of you for this.

If you're thinking about checking out Ada, you might want to take a
look at D. I haven't gotten very far into it myself (I was attracted
by DbC), but it looks like a modern redesign of C: GC, OO, and
typedefs that actually define new types, while still being something
it's possible to generate reasonably fast code for.
