More documentation, rich in examples.  Tutorials at
major conferences.

ACeDB is still the only system where middle-aged,
tenured Molecular Biologists sit down and understand
the interaction quickly.

Please spare the world an objectified, Corba-ready,
OMG sanctioned, UML specified, Java-rich, multi-tiered,
component-heavy, ORB-funky, multiply-inherited,
polymorphic, open-source, ontolological yet hermeneutic,
slow-as-molasses, non-functional ACeDB.


p.s. Genes are verbs not objects.
