Actually, I'm a bit of a polyglot myself (mostly Perl and Java for work, still dabbling at Python, bought Dave & Andy's Ruby book but haven't had time to invest in serious reading/playing.) I get very interested in seeing how mental models of various languages shape (or at least influence) one's design and coding, and would likely have spent more time on Python had it been around when I decided to learn Perl.
