I wouldn't sweat M. Swaine's comments. It can be debated until the end of time what's "real" and what's not, but to my way of thinking, "real" is whatever gets the job done. If a language can be used to correctly solve a problem in a repeatable, timely manner (elegance is always good, too), then that's real enough.
