If it fits a niche for a particular segment it will survive and 
evolve.   Just because it doesn't make mass adoption to where the common 
programmer knows about it doesn't necessarily mean it isn't a success.   
All to often we evaluate the success by how wide spread it is, not by 
how well it may do its job when it's needed.
