I don't think I've ever mentioned intelligence in this thread...

Not really. Its development was sponsored by the DoD, but the team(s)
that created it (CII Honeywell Bull for Ada 80/83, Intermetrics for
Ada 95) were from the industry.

At this point, it is clear that I don't understand your definition of
"straightforward", so there's not much point in continue arguing. For
the definition of "straightforward" that I'm using, not even the
designers and maintainers of Ada would call it so.

Believe me, I use C++ as little as possible. In my list of preferred
"modern" languages, the only one that would score even worse is Java.
