I would. But I'd like it to be something more than introductory. So, say, at least half the code should include static type, there should be good coverage of readers, expanders, etc.

I think there's a gap for a good language that's both powerful and easy to use. Scala has screwed up with 2.8, being overly-complex, and Oracle (not Scala's fault, obviously). Meanwhile, Python is continuing to expand, but people become frustrated with its limitations. Racket could be the next step for such people, but they don't want an introduction - they want the real meat.

PS Datalog should be included too! :o)
