If we are looking at using a new language, why not consider far more powerful and elegant languages such as Haskell, Lisp, Ocaml or Mercury? Time and time again people discover that these languages pay off quickly, yet Gnome still argues about tired old C derivatives.
(A standard reply to this is that there are no significant gnome or kde projects to use such high level languages making it hard to justify a leap into the dark, but this argument is somewhat self-fulfilling)
