In which sense is BLISS not in current use? I know most
_new_ stuff that OpenVMS Engineering do is now in C,
but there must be plenty of maintenance etc. happening 

I'm sure I still have an Algol compilr for OpenVMS
somewhere. While Algol has probably fallen out of
use, I expect that there are still plenty of people
who would crawl out of the woodwork to help!

I'll leave Jovial for someone else to defend :-)
