It's probably a long shot, but I would give my vote for
any language backed up by an independent standards committee.
The standards document is a contract between the language
implementor and the coding in that language.  It takes a
big step away from the "it works for me" mind-set and towards
a long-term supportable investment in reliable code.

Scheme fits: IEEE 1178-1990, reaffirmed in 2008.  Not that
I'm any fan of IEEE's copyright behavior.

ECMAScript?  <gd&r>
