Well, yes, non-POSIX shells live in a different niche than POSIX shells. This niche overlaps somewhat with perl and other languages that people sometimes use to invoke programs and hook them together and munge their output and such.

But the last such attempts that I remember seeing (of ones that try to be shell-like) were rc and es.

I wouldn't say tcsh lives in a different niche than bash.

Obviously, Perl and shellscript have a large overlap, but Perl is suited for many programming tasks where shellscript would be a terrible idea, and Perl is pretty far from suitable as an interactive shell. Attempts to create a Perl-based shell, like Zoidberg, haven't really attracted any users that aren't hardcore Perl lovers.
