you are lame. java/c# libs can't be used with current ghc, so 99% of
libs we may need are written in c/c++. making porting these lubs as
hard as possible and then heroically rewrite them in pure haskell is
one way, good for PhD and other pseudo-scientific activity. building
bridges to the world of existing software is the way to the real
haskell usage in big projects

Best regards,
