The argument quickly becomes: if you wrote it in Perl it would still be C. A language is just a set of grammar, instructions, and symbols. At what level it reaches the processor is something of an implementation detail really. Witness the various flavors of Perl 6 so far. A language with a specification is a language whether or not it's entirely translated from the written page to something executable outside a developer's brain.
