I would say that being a relatively niche technology would be a factor in 
not using Haskell, because finding staff to handle software maintenance is 

Also, I think that memory usage and performance is still an issue (real or 
imagined?  My sense is that compiled Haskell can match widely languages 
like Perl or Python, but not yet Java or C/C++).
