Pardon butting in your conversation, but if I could just offer my .02

1) even here, in backwater-1mbit-dsl-is-100euros-a-month Greece, there are
decent programmers who either don't use version control, or are just not
fluent enough in the English language. A native language dll, for all
languages, would help me introduce TSVN and the concept of version control a
lot more easily to those cobol-and-clipper programmers. (The C/C++/Lisp
programmers already know about SVN :> )

2) if you guys are aiming at a complete software product (which you are),
and not just a program, then yes, you should provide language dlls for the
entire application, even if it's a small app. In case you guys got a copy of
Brook's book the "Mythical Man-Month", you can open the book on page 5, Fig
1-1, where Brooks talks about the "Programming Systems Product" vs Garage

3) uuuh, I forgot point no 3. All I remember was that it was a very valid
point, and it had to do something with waterproof laptops, a case of black
rum bottles, coca-cola, plenty of ice and swing tied to two opposing palm
trees.... <insert Azul.jpg>

Again, I apologise for butting in :)
