That was what my second [snipped] paragraph was about.

If you could find tutorials or sample code in other languages, that 
might be less biased.  Or maybe more biased in the other direction.  On 
the other hand, I suspect you might have to work at Google to be able to 
run those sorts of queries.

It's a hard problem, and while I applaud your effort, I just wanted to 
make sure that people knew that it wasn't necessarily representative of 
the real world.
