Haskell is very successful. It completely dominates the niche it
was aiming for, a shared language for functional programming
researchers. Sure, it lacks some namespace capabilities needed
for writing large programs, but that is not needed for research...
I am not particularly fond of Lua, but I am not sure that
breakage is a problem for an embedded scripting language as you
can just stay with a particular version and even fork the
language with low cost. You don't need to focus on interop
outside your own application.
Lua and Python are the two dominating contenders in that niche
(embedded scripting engines).
