ROTF!!  PG-13!  Great name!

Seriously, I've suggested calling the language RPG V.
No-one here likes the idea, and I don't disagree with
their reasons.  The language is steadily evolving, but
I don't think anyone foresees a big change like we had
from RPG III to RPG IV.

I know this looks quite a bit different from traditional
RPG programming, but basically, after writing a few
programs using the CF-Spec exclusively, to me the
language is still RPG, only better.

Cheers!  Hans
