Fyi, I replied in another in note to Bill's comments there are gaps
and limitations in Fortran relative to other programming options for
OO, say those that make it to the top 5 on the Tiobe Index and as
such, I'm mostly unhappy with where things stand with Fortran.

However can you please elaborate on this specific name issue? I would
have thought this was one aspect where Fortran does alright with '=>'
