It's a language born in 1997, and it's sometimes used as a more 
modern replacement for TCL to create small programs with GUIs:

It semantics is clean, it has everything built-in, its syntax is 
readable and very short. There are many persons that don't think 
of it as insane. I have used it to quickly create GUIs for 
programs written in other languages too.

And it doesn't spit mysterious linker errors. It's far simpler to 
understand than D.
