Um, I think you'll find the actual order (at least for FC4) is going to be:
C, C++, Python, Perl. Almost all of the Fedora GUI system tools are Python. There are very, very few progams that are built using Perl. automake and autoconf are the biggest ones. foomatic also uses perl and I think libtool.

Don't get me wrong, there are a lot of packages that require perl, but most of these are perl modules and not applications.

That was what I expected to find, but it wasn't what I found. Your mileage may vary. I didn't look at a Red Hat system, which undoubtedly has lots of Python programs not found on other distros. Python is another pragmatic language, anyway, that "plays well with others".

automake/autoconf uses m4, or am I missing something obvious?

autoconf: m4
automake: perl

That's what it used to be.

For Fedora Core 4 the order will be C, C++, Java, Lisp/Scheme, Perl, Ada, Python, Assembly (ignoring shell scripts, most of which are auto* files anyways).

Here's the data to back this up:

"Java is largely confined to programs for people who are already obliged (by corporate diktat?) to use it, or write it."

Eclipse 1310322
OpenOffice 210424
ecj 181576
Xalan 158309
Ant 102443
Xerces 97919
KDE Bindings 66933
ANTLR 48279
GNU-Crypto 48083
libgtk-java 34358

How many of these are useful to somebody not already obliged to run Java, for being obliged to write it? Sure, Sun shoehorned the stuff into OO.o, but that's corporate diktat too.
