I would think it more likely that Matz will simply pick up many
folks who know Japanese but not English fluently. The world is a
very large place, where even niche variants of programming languages
can attract followings sizeable enough to give languages for those
niches momentum. This would characterize Python's early history, as
a matter of fact.
