I'd like the enumerations of the merits of the language/runtime
please.  Community is important, but I'm not doing this for social
reasons.  I could care less if every Perl coder in the world was a
hose head, as long as it's a better language/runtime that Python.

Hard-core coders seems like a term open to interpretation.  I want facts.
I am a Java-head.  If the Ruby community thinks more like Java, that
would be a benefit in my mind.

Aside from Jayce, I like most Perl developers.  They're practical and gritty.

But note taken.  Thanks.
