And he managed to plug Jini and Java quite a bit as well, I see. I wish there was a transcript or audio file of the event.

Hehe, he even mentions Eiffel in there. I learned Eiffel maybe he should try it before calling it quirky. I would call it seriously screwed up in some places.

Personally, I would be very impress ed if anyone get the Mozilla source code smaller by 5 - 10%. For what it does its does and complies too its pretty good.
