> Haskell is simultaneously a production language and a functional programming research language, yes; it is expanding all the time.  Even if by some chance you could learn everything currently known about it, the endpoint will have moved in the meantime.  (This is why the Platform, intended for practical development, does not track the most recent GHC; *that* is intended for the research folks, may not be production-level stable, and will only make its way into the Platform for production folks to use later.  Or sometimes not at all, as with ghc 7.2.x.)
