Found on the recent HN discussion about Gerbil Scheme: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=15394603

One interesting point here is how he prioritizes choice of language based on relationships. This connects up with my comment on avoiding dependencies at http://arclanguage.org/item?id=20221. The conventional wisdom that the community of a language matters more than its technical attributes is a diluted version of this idea.
