"Much of the relative simplicity of Java is - like for most new
languages - partly an illusion and partly a function of its
incompleteness. As time passes, Java will grow significantly in size and
complexity. It will double or triple in size and grow
implementation-dependent extensions or libraries. That is the way every
commercially successful language has developed. Just look at any
language you consider successful on a large scale. I know of no
exceptions, and there are good reasons for this phenomenon. -
<Bjarne Stroustroup>

The same can be said for Perl/Tcl/Python/Rebol/Ruby/etc.
