Overall your list is fair, and you're right that more languages could
be considered. However, you also argued elsewhere in this thread that
Go had an unpythonic design so we shouldn't put too much weight on what
it does. Given that, I think it's fair to add that, in my opinion,
little weight on any precedent they set.
What would be nice is to know how much people like these various
languages, and how productive people are with these languages, and then
correlate that with their various features. However, as discussed on
another thread, getting hard data about such matters is not easy.
"Do not follow where the path may lead. Go, instead, where there is no
path, and leave a trail."
