The count looks closer to 18
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PostgreSQL#Procedural_languages
but I doubt some get much use (PL/LOLCODE anyone?).

PL/R opens some good functionality not offered by any other language,
and is particularly useful for statistics, GIS and other science
applications. R itself is often a wrapper to dusty FORTRAN subroutines
published in statistics journals decades ago.
