Hmm.. What is wrong with the real picture, ugly or not, tiobe score is

not a game, it's about getting metrics about the real world.


Most languages don't include their C API as part of the specification, am I correct?

If that is true, then the most apples to apples comparison would focus on Lua as a language. In that case, you'd ideally want to capture everywhere that Lua is used, including in games, Lightroom, etc.; anywhere that my ability to solve problems with Lua the scripting language would be relevant. 

From that perspective, Lua seems underreported and tiobe might be better served by including more implementations.
