"Quite rare" is being generous :-).  Some portion of the USG played with one
years ago, I think they had some Java code done by a government contractor,
and AFAIK that's it.  I got the impression at the time that it was more a 
means of getting vendor lock-in than anything else, i.e. using a protocol
that nothing else implemented ensured you got the contract because there was
no alternative

I'm not sure if Denis was being deliberately disingeneous with the 5055 
reference...
