There's python. There's no real native compliation support, but it's so dynamic
that would be hard to do. You can, say, change the base classes of an instance
on the fly. It's very cool. :-)

Re the other poster, I've heard o'caml's interesting. You'll get a speed
increase with that, but I'd imagine the community is much smaller.
