Are you interested in borrowing from other languages too? In that case:

- maybe you should poll (say) Erlang users about what their favourite 
features are of that language

- maybe poll Ruby users about what their favourite features from *other* 
languages are, that they would have liked to have seen in Ruby

- maybe poll Ruby users if there are any things they dislike about Ruby 
in its current form
