Given how little inherent support for concurrency those two have, it is not a
huge shock that new programming languages are looking to do things

You can probably look forward to hearing more about Go, Clojure, Erlang, and
similar languages over the next while — or, at least, about the concurrency
models they embody and promote, to take advantage of the growing number of
processing cores / threads in modern hardware.
