It should be fun. Unfortunately the inertia of legacy implementations is often so heavy that many new efforts are not even considered. The case that always comes to my mind is the sad story of the D programming language. It looks quite interesting, but it has failed to gain wide support. Meanwhile the namespace was miserably trampled by Sun engineers with the language used in DTrace (I guess they didn't know about the former, or the temptation to use "D" was too irresistible).
