Support for other languages in AWS Lambda

According to the AWS Lambda FAQ.

Q: What languages does AWS Lambda support?

AWS Lambda supports code written in Node.js (JavaScript), Python, Java (Java 8 compatible), and C# (.NET Core). Your code can include existing libraries, even native ones. Please read our documentation on using Node.js, Python, Java, and C#.

So, I was under the impression that AWS Lambda only supports  the languages mentioned in the FAQ documentation. But, other languages are also supported in Lambda with some effort. Here is the AWS blog on the same. Basically it's a Node.js wrapper for invoking the program in one of the language which is not supported by default by AWS Lambda. There would be an overhead with the above approach, but not sure how much.
