At the risk of sounding like I'm trying to resurrect "roadmap goals", 
may I ask:  Do you have an order of battle for these disruptive changes?

In other words, do you have an idea as to which areas you yourself 
expect to be working on, and in what order?

And are there are any areas that can be double-teamed?

Can you elaborate on that?  Some of our developers are probably already 
working with those languages as abstraction layers, but for others it 
might be virgin territory.

Thank you very much.
