Your concerns about Rust may be justified (I'm not taking sides!) but I noticed two things:

(1)

But of course Rust may never get beyond the interesting idea phase and get seriously used.

Rust is in serious use right now. There is Rust code shipping in Firefox.

Dean Roddey wrote:
And Rust may suffer in other ways from not having any real single driving force.

Rust does have a single corporate backer/driving force: It is Mozilla. Indeed, this is a source of criticism from some quarters since people say that Rust is structured to solve Mozilla's particular issues with C++ in a very large code base.


As for "not a glorified scripting", what do you think of Go or D?
