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.
