Doubtless. I think if they're casting about for excuses not to use
Haskell, they're unlucky not to have hit on time/space issues. Anyway,

"Purely functional languages like Haskell are excellent to write
in, but non-trivial work is involved with implementing a lazy
language in a strict run-time environment. ..."
