Other than some obvious concerns, my main concern is support in the open source community. "anon" from the CoffeeScript team sent this to me after I requested input from the team to concerns I raised and wanted to get others' take on it:

"Thanks for confirming that only idiots willingly program in Java and C#"

or the following from the same person:

"Oh and finally, you should definitely create jShort. Even though I know you will fail before you even start, I would love to laugh at your attempts and it would be perfect for you since you ride the short bus. "

This kind of comment reflects badly on the CoffeeScript team and hence not an option for us as a company to consider. Another example of why some open-source community projects get no traction.

Coffee Script is kind of crappy, but other free options you have are Java, Turing(also a little crappy), C#, or Visual Basic(Not sure if it is completely free).
