Not many programmers are as well-versed in programming language issues
as most people on this list. For example, I am not. So, a language that
caters to the top 10% of programmers is not a language that I could use.

I'd hate to see good ideas fade away because there just isn't a critcal
mass of programmers using a language that embodies those ideas. Perhaps,
then, the challenge is to make the good ideas accessible to the Great
Unwashed Masses(tm).
