I note this remark on the Microsoft Research site
Purely functional languages like Haskell are excellent within certain
niches, but unfortunately some simple programming exercises can quickly turn
into problems that require a PhD. to solve.

Are the Microsoft Research people working on GHC or anyone else on this list
also of this opinion? If so, why?

What if anything does the quoted remark mean for the prospects of seeing a
production Haskell compiler from Microsoft?
