I think you've missed the point of the original question, which was really about choice of language environment, i.e. how to choose between Perl, Java, C#, etc. I would argue that Perl is a stronger choice, as a language environment, than Java at least, because it is so easy to drop down to the metal (using XS) when the need arises.

We're building the house of the future together.
