There are weightings that allow getting Python, Java, C, and Delphi to
be "favored."  It wasn't clear that there was a way to get Perl and
Lisp to get to the top of the list.

Strong language gets results.  "The  reloader is completely broken  in
242" will open  a lot more eyes than  "The reloader doesn't load files
with intermixed spaces, asterisks,  and <'s in   their names that  are
bigger than 64K".  You can always say the latter in a later paragraph.
