I think there's a big difference between, ``Not Invented Here,''
and ``Doesn't Work Here.'' FUD does not apply either, we're certain
there's no modula-3 port to many of these platforms, and we don't doubt it
will be painful doing the port to every single platform. All the other
suggestions are known to be ported to the other platforms. I have no
doubt this might be faster after having read some of these posts, but the
fastest application in the world isn't useful if you can't run it.
