I'm not so sure.

When I go to learn a new language, I want a pretty clear idea that I'll
be able to use it to solve many different types of problems.  That's
even more true with Haskell.  It'll probably take most people more time
to get up to speed with Haskell than it would take them with, say,
Python or Java.
