Is there any hope for a more modern ubiquitous light weight scripting language?

It can be learned, and one can even learn to love it. But scripting is often done by people that very seldom write scripts, the barrier to make decent scripts is much too high and readability isn't much better. The nonsensical syntax is also easy to forget, the result is just an awful lot of headache and poor scripts floating around. Surely we can do better?
