I think in 1996 Perl WAS too difficult -- for the browser to embed. Back in the day, it was heavy.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but today, it's durn near svelte. Or, at least, in the same general footprint as all scripting languages. Interpreters are light as a feather, due to support for video driving all the bloat in today's software I suppose.

Heck, there's no reason EVERY scripting language can't be plugged into browsers, all at the same time, into one blob.
