Oh, I don't doubt your figures at all. I just think it
is a shame, given how easy objects are to use (and I am
*not* talking about object graphics now) and how
significantly they could change the way your write

But I'm old enough to remember how we had to bring
all you old farts, uh, excuse me, scientific programmers,
along with widgets, too, so I still hold out hope. :-)
