  I think I'd prefer "... than other object-oriented scripting
languages" and just leave it.  Non-technical commentary on other
languages should be left for Advocacy-SIG.  ;-)
  Seriously, I'd keep it simple and to-the-point.  The SIGs I follow
seem to be doing fine with their self-moderating status, so there's
little point in making clear what the SIG isn't for as long as what it
is for is explained.
