This article states some industry folly, the likes of which
i have also seen first hand, but is Not on target for tleap IMHO.

2. There are many apt languages for rewriting: python works for me, but
I think C++ would be better: lends itself to an incremental approach since
we have a working C code, STL is similar to scripting languages,
we have a programmer that did rewrite it in C++.

3. Rewriting should have full support from the am dev community.
Apparently, we don't have it, so the odds of failure (again) are high.
I suggest that those PI's that think tleap is fine should be the ones to
maintain it and be tasked with extending it (this set includes at least Yong).
