That's my impresion: some well-tested code is good, although it might be not
so "hot" nor "cool".
Like the Tcl/Tk programming combo: it's been around forever as a
cross-platform system.. It works, there are no major changes to it because it
works just fine... but is has been "phased out" favouring fledgleing (?)
languages such as python, perl, php...
