can you draw a line between Java the language and Java the implementation
the same way the Common Lisp guys had to draw that line?  if you can't,
don't you think it's grossly unfair to compare the two infavorably as long
as there are implementations that support everything you ask for?  I do.

I'm no longer young enough to know everything.
