Programming GNOME applications with Vala

Why yet another language? Isn't there allready a whole bestiarium of languages C++, Objective C, C#, D, Java. IMHO this is a sign of arogance and ignorance. Every system, when reaching a "production-grade" size, has some bugs and compromises build in. It is naive to think that a new "light weight" macro based domain specific language will share a better destony. I would ask every developer first to think twice about making something, what allready exists, better, before inventing something simmilair for the second time. It will probably have problemms too, just different ones.
