I would hate to live in a world with only one programing language. :)
But is this such a huge practical problem other than for embedded systems and
such where you aren't really likely to be in such a need of package managers
to begin with?
I mean perl/python/ruby and such is used all over the place; many
installations will already have it. Would you consider it a show-stopper for
using a package manager, that it depended on, for example, ruby?
