> I agree with you for the typical environment...however, our project is not
government owned but comes with a current/updated security clearance
requirement - significantly reducing the available pool.  Our situation is
unique in that requirement but I it reduces the pool of eligible programmers
across all languages the same (although I have no research to back up this
claim).  So...if there are 1:1000 quality perl:java engineers our ratio
stays the same...but the pool is that much smaller.
