How can it possibly be that for something as important as software,
and for languages that are a decade old, there is 'inadequate data'
to support a language decision, and if the data is in fact
inadequate, how can it be that it's not worth spending any time or
money getting some data?  Or, if it's another case of "make the
decision, then do the staff work", what does it say that nobody
even bothers to pretend to justify the decision. :(
