Pugs (implemented in Haskell... serious WTF territory there)
Pugs revitalised Perl6 almost overnight; without it there would likely be nothing. And arguably Haskell was a big part of that success.
Multiple implementations of the same language passing the a shared test suite isnt what I expected its hard enough coding for one; just look at the C# compiler bugs and runtime cockups!
Precisely why one needs multiple implementations.
