      You're answering a different question.

Possibly.  Depends on whether J can be used now (or soon).

I do not know the answer.

Let us assume the answer is no.

Then the next relevant J question
is whether Roger Hui et al would
provide a port for the XO; if yes,
the next question is would that port
be available in a reasonable time frame?

What I do know is that J is a great teaching tool
and would meet many needs and can with
relative ease present lessons (labs) in both
natural language neutral and natural language
specific forms according to implementation
used by the designer of a given lab:

     +/  2 2            NB. natural language neutral
      add =. +/       NB. natural language specific [English]
      add 2 2
