On it being the lingua franca of open source.... low level then sure but in terms of combined volume I reckon Java, Python and Perl might take some of that and if I am allowed to consider some using those as the main language and dropping down to the likes of C for "inline" type purposes then even more so. Wind in android/IOS and web stuff (give or take CGI) and it changes again.
Well, I consider it's more like common denominator and the language of the oldest, stablest projects than anything else. If we go by what people are putting on Github, then JavaScript* is the big winner this year; it's almost like everyone and their dog wants to get rich writing Web/mobile apps ;)

* obligatory ughhhhhhhhh
we are in a horrible and deadly danger
