Right - and a lot of people doing web scripting are definitely not
programmers. Not by a long shot. Not that they aren't bright people,
but, a language that allows them to be productive doing simple things
in the shortest time possible is a win for people paying money for
their time. I spent my summer overseeing a big web scripting project,
so I've given the matter a fair amount of thought..
