I find that higher level stuff is best written and maintained in dynamic stuff while libs and frameworks needs the constraint of statically typed languages (fyi, I've been also programming in perl, ruby and java).
It's not "high-level" is "low-level". It's "few knowledgeable maintainers who really know what they are doing" vs "bunch of random fixes from all around the place brought together by people who've not participated in the initial design".
High-level stuff just more often falls in the first category and libraries more often fall into the second category.
Dynamically-typed languages are nice and fast to program in if you know what you are doing, statically-typed languages provide guarantee that at least the most awful atrocities will be caught right away.
