The language has been around for a few years, I think I've still got a zip of the old MIT curl project that the commercial enterprise stemmed from. What surprised me during the Curl beta was that after a year and 250 people working on it, it showed surprisingly little advancement, especially considering what 4 guys at RT did in the same time.
