"We want to create a run time environment that supports Java,
 C, Visual Basic, and a new set of languages that are coming
 along that really deal with this XML schema issue, that really
 take data binding, which has been really the worst thing in
 development, where you have to go and find the data, find the
 format of the data, pull it in, transform it, and try to get it back
 out.  Most code is written around that.  And that impedance
 match, there are ways of taking some of the ideas that were
 around object database language couplings, and really getting
 those into the mainstream."

Not sure what it means, but it sounds good. -T.
