Please add a mode where you should write code that will work in two different languages at the same time.

@primo-ppcg Ah it burns! I was just thinking of doing Perl 5 & 6, "C, Perl, PHP, Python, Ruby" is impressive!

If the scoring was done as length / #langs, I'm pretty sure PHP + Perl would usually win. Perl 5 and Perl 6 are too dissimilar 😜

Ooo I hadn't even thought how to score this yet, I guess you might want to enter nCr solutions per hole! So we could just have dynamic leaderboards container every combination of langs.

I think the leaderboards would be rather scant if every language combination were listed separately. Another reasonable scoring system could be ranked first by the number of languages, and second by the length of the code.

@primo-ppcg I like it! So there's always an incentive to go for one more language.

/me hopes @AlexDaniel wasn't shooting for an April Fools, because I'm actually coming round to this idea!
