I'm afraid I don't know much about most of the names on the published
list of editors on the site, so it's hard to tell what the "natural"
bias might be.  The originator of the comment about a possible Java
bias is definately a regular reader of xmlhack, so I expect it's based
on casually observing the flow of articles.

Regarding Java and announcements... I suspect that high levels of
exposure to marketing hype tend to produce high levels of marketing
hype.  A dreadful and potentially deadly cycle.

I've certainly noticed when Python-related items pop up.  Please don't
misunderstand my comments; I like xmlhack and really appreciate
volunteer efforts like this!
