Perl and Tcl both seem to have only one implementation.  There is an
alternative Ruby implementation, called JRuby, which describes itself
as compatible.  There are at least two alternative Python
implementations, PyPy and Jython, but I don't think their
compatibility is perfect.

All of these were developed, however, after the original language
became well-established.
