AppEngine next language ?

Python, Java, ...
Java also opened the door for JRuby. The next language could be a less generic one. The upcoming Wave service powered over XMPP and suggesting OpenFire server for support could well be the application killer boosting Erlang language via a server like ejabberd.
Erlang is opensource, powered by a virtual machine, highly suitable for network oriented applications. Surely the community around the language is sparse but it's gaining more and more interest as people face threading problems.
