Should I be prepared to "mix and match" languages in a Web services environment?

With all the different platform options out there, should I look to set-up a Web services environment that is all based on one language or should I be prepared to "mix and match" languages?
You shouldn't have to be prepared to mix and match languages--Web services shield you from having to commit to a single language. That's the beauty of Web services--they interoperate across platforms and programming languages. Good thing, too, because the chances that your Web services-based systems will all be in a single language are zero. Remember, in the federated, heterogeneous, distributed world of Web services, you'll surely need to tie in other business units, partners, legacy systems and so on.
