What loss?  What sad?

Python, Scheme, Ruby... all free for the cherry picking, takes the
brains of a hamster to download and install (if that much -- basic
twitch behavior).

There's been no loss or leakage of any kind from an engineering point
of view.  What leaked away, apparently, was any brains in the math
teaching sector.  Mostly bozos over there.

Which is why CS is moving in to take over, flying the banner of CP4E.

The Texas "hamster brain" Instruments crowd needs to make room.
