I'd like to see it. However, I'm afraid that most academics would prefer the "there's only one way to do X" mentality of python.

I'm actually teaching Ruby to a group of middle schoolers, and they're taking to it VERY well. I think the fact that you can do things a lot of ways helps rather than hinders.
