OK, but...there is a very similar evidence trail (as Joe Hall points
out) for Accubasic having been treated as COTS too. Is this Diebold
hiding customized code from ITA scrutiny to save money, or is this the
ITAs garbling things beyond belief?

<scratches head>

I would assume Diebold reviewed the final report. If Wyle screwed up
and labeled either ABasic, CE or both "COTS", Diebold would have a duty
to speak up.

It's ultimately Diebold's job to get certification of their custom code.

Sidenote: major thanks to Joe Hall for pointing out that there's a
friggin' PATTERN here, in that ABasic was bloopered the same way and
that is absolutely no-question not COTS.
