Ah, good suggestion.  I'm going to take a pass for that week, but I like
the idea.  You can all sit around the table and give thanks for Larry
et al. ;)

Yeah, it would be nice to actually use the libraries you want
regardless of language, huh?  I guess the type mapping will be a
little weird (e.g. you don't have primitive hash refs in Java, nor
flattened array "varargs".  I can see how you could fake either one,

Note to self:  Read more Apocalypses.  You're way behind.
