Thanks for this, had some more time to read it more closely.  Correct me if I'm 
probably wrong, but most of these are not used by many.  Except perhaps:

- Typescript, which is constrained by a compatibility goal with JavaScript.
- Julia,
- Possibly Elixir, have heard good things about it.

My focus was on "industry standard" languages however, not pushing the envelope 
too far but rather on humdrum bug reduction and maintainability, an area Python 
aspires to, I believe.

There was a stack overflow survey recently, should probably dig that up.
