    There is absolutely _no_ need whatsoever for Japanese people to learn  
    _any_ bit of English to become excellent programmers.

You may be right.  I suspect, however, that many of them need to learn
English to read less-popular technical material which is not so widely

Be that as it may, it doesn't change the situation for us.  No other
language approaches English in its suitability for being read by
programmers (and users) around the world.

It is a GNU standard that names, comments, and manuals be written in
