This is the first day in a very long time that I've gotten more mail on 
a single subject than the total amount of spam and it seems to prove the 
old saying "Opinions are like assholes; Everybody's got one".

Who (really) cares what language is used? Those willing to pick up the 
torch when the summer of code is over should report their interest to 
Fyodor (or the list, by all means) and then help coordinate the efforts 
with the student(s) who will actually do the work. Since there's no way 
on earth the rest of us are going to agree on anything at all anyways we 
can just as well keep our assholes... sorry, opinions... to ourselves.

And remember; No money is paid to the student unless the project can be 
said to have reached a certain completeness at the end of summer. Under 
those circumstances I think it's a fairly safe bet that the student 
doing the work will pick whatever language he/she knows best.
