I guess I should have specified "general purpose". Yeah, of course you can
do anything in Forth, Postscript, or Applescript, but they aren't much
competition for Python. 

(By which I mean they serve vastly differing uses; I've never used Forth
directly but I have done HP-48 programming and I liked it and I hear
there's a lot of similarities. Great calculator language. Of the ones
listed Forth is the closest to being a plausible app language, but it
would need more libraries.)
