i have been thinking about this off-and-on for the past 10 months, and
have just realized that there's a major opportunity to make gnucobol a
force to reckon with.

if gnucobol be made to comply with the standards 100%, then a system can
be built using stock components from the gnu/linux toolchest to craft an
open system capable of supporting the cobol code from legacy systems.

if such a system be built and released as free software, it could pave
the way for a migration of a whole lot of systems from 'ibm' to standard
x86-64 based hardware.

the biggest question that comes to mind is;
what capabilities be expected off such a system platform?
other than of course the ability to compile and run legacy cobol code,
with as little modifications as possible!

requesting a discussion on this topic.
