RPG programmer career outlook for 2004

Do you see RPG programmers getting back into development, or should they start looking at other alternatives such as Java or C++?
As I have mentioned before, having depth to your portfolio of skills is ALWAYS a good idea. Although the RPG skills will be in demand for a long while to come, most employers are looking for PAs with skills in other areas in addition to a strong RPG skillset. Web enablement seems to be the dominant interest of late so adding skills in Java, HTML, et al, will help you become more desirable in the job market.
