Footprint-Neutral Curricular Change

Last wee we had a SIGPLAN-sponsored workshop on programming languages education. Most of the usual luminaries, and people like me, attended. One of the outcomes—what, in fact, I think may be our most significant outcome—was a suggestion to rearrange some hours in the core ACM curriculum. You can find the details of that proposal here.

If at think this is at all a good idea (and you should), please post a comment to that effect. Yes, it'll take an extra minute of your time because you'll have to log in, which will involve remembering your ACM user ID (which you have long forgotten), but believe me, it'll be worth your time.
