I like python too. I used it for Agora and for my gluecode around the spam filter system. So, don't get me wrong, it's just
that we should not fail to see *why* we have the flow in javascript:

 1) we have continuations
 2) syntax is friendly to java developers
 3) syntax is friendly to DHTML/Flash client side developers
 4) syntax is java-unfriendly enough to force you to separate your
business logic into java strongly-typed components

I see no other scripting language that gives us all this. Even the use
of java itself (if it had continuations) we improve #2 but miss #3 and #4.

IMHO, the current implementation brings the best social balance.
