Yes, I've been playing with it.  It's a good complement to Python in 
that it's statically typed with an efficient compiler.  It has an 
interactive interpreter, but there are some cases where it feels lower 
level.  Like you can't do introspection to the same extent, and it 
doesn't have the magic string formatting (or rather, it must for the 
interpreter, but I don't know how to get at it).
