Luasucksless.org ? :)
One thing that would be so nice to have is optional typing. I think
Python 3 has that (correct if I'm wrong). And C# has something
similar, coming from the other direction.
Lua with optional static type checking would expand the use of the
language much. And we've shown it can be done.

Ruby was no where before Rails but I don't believe the language
so much, people just discovered it once they saw it's usefulness in
application. Now Ruby has momentum and I bet it would still be

It looks like the Delphi community has intentional manipulated Tiobe,
