Response to: groovy ? no thanks I'd rather go for javascript (rhino) in Seppia

What I also said in the introduction was

... other developers have been hoping for a scripting language with the power of Perl, Python, or Ruby but without having to re-learn everything from the ground up.

Whatever you say about JavaScript, it does not have the power of Perl, Python or Ruby.

Seppia may be a nice solution for some applications.
Choice is good, and I'm choosing Groovy which does have the greater expressive power while remaining largely upwards-compatible with Java itself.
