I think the biggest determiner, by far, is ease of integration and
deployment. Integration means things like how can I use this with a web
page, full other other bits in JS (like google analytics, and FB plug-ins),
and access jQuery. Deployment means things like how easily I can edit, and
then see that code run *in situ.* These things, more than language
completeness, will determine what succeeds.  (viz. PHP!)
