Why does that sound like retroweaver/translater is not an option?

I haven't personally used it for such a huge project yet but obviously
other projects are using it - successfully. For the API differences they
provide a runtime jar btw.

I would rather give that a try than adjusting our project to the speed
of IT departments in large banks or organizations in general.

...and whoever thinks these "little things" don't make a difference in
coding should listen to some of the ruby talks available on the net.
Or even better - play a bit with it.

There is a fine line between getting stuck in legacy and loosing users.

Please, let's do so!
