I published a blog post today that talked about Ethereum's Solidity as well
as Interledger Crypto-conditions:

https://tonyarcieri.com/a-tale-of-two-cryptocurrencies

Unspoken in this post is the idea that instead of using protocol-level
smart contracts like Solidity that "live on the blockchain", if you have a
simple "smart contract" language that allows you to build escrows, you can
layer higher level smart contracts on top of the escrows in a way that's
out-of-band from the underlying protocol. Perhaps others are thinking along
these lines?
