Based on the fact that even Google can't tell me anything more than that
webpage about what "Open Code Generation" or this "Unison" project are,
I doubt the Committee at large has any feeling about it at all. I also
doubt, given its obscurity, that it can be considered an "existing
practice" that's appropriate for standardization. That said, I'm very
curious to know more about it.
