Certainly that's the expected defense. Could you spell that out 
specifically? And, besides the Yaws / Mochi / Apache shoot outs, are 
there current benchmarks or any metrics out there that show results of 
which there is some agreement in the community that they do measure 
something that IS relevant? And I mean that widely, like, on average 1/4 
of code vs. C. That'd be a valid point.

Thanks,
Henning
