The notion of The One True Programming Language has been a holy grail since the dawn of programming, and seen by almost everyone as a chimera only shortly after that.  It simply isn't going to happen by any wild stretch of the imagination.

Still, I'd say anyone who wants to write a new language should give it a try; it's a hell of a learning experience.  I'd keep the description of the project light on superlatives like "Universal" though, unless you're prepared to weather a lot of scorn from all corners.

Somehow missed the follow-ups here:

Learning experience = great..assuming you have the time.  You can get the same learning experience with an achievable goal however.  That way, even if you fail, you're much more likely to have something usable.  Setting "high targets" is all well and good but remember Icarus.

Universal language = LISP family.  The grail was discovered in 1958 and some people haven't noticed.  Or they have and it isn't what they expected so they keep attempting to make it more pretty...and fail.  The OO model is really awful...but it works well with our little human brains and that's why it's so useful.  (as an aside..why oh why don't people lovingly accept M-expressions.)

@badlogicgames: The trick is to know when you're being "crazy like a fox" or just plain crazy.
