Agreed. Sounds like some good exercises below. Any suggestions on good 
languages for writing translations ? I am considering Haskell and oCaml 
and trying to phase out XSLT.    (01)

Cory, I thought you'd appreciate John's suggestions below regarding UML 
-> CL translations. I look back fondly on the many debates in our 
conference room regarding just this subject !    (02)

John: Happy Holidays to you and your family. Say hi to Arun.    (03)

And Happy Holidays to everyone here on the Ontolog Forum !    (04)
