I think every programming language of note has at one point or another
entertained notions of being a universal "glue" for everyone else. The
problem is, a universal glue presumes a programming model and/or syntax
and/or widespread implementation and/or license that everyone finds
usable. Unfortunately, between rooting for the underdog and resisting
change, no single glue language/layer has ever come to pass. But I think
Havoc's got a grip on problems, at least, which is more than most who have
passed this way.
