If TLS is desired its probably for security.  I would think a TLS 
implementation written in Haskell would offer much better assurances that 
the implementation was correct.  Given the complexity of TLS and history 
of past mistakes, I would feel much better having a Haskell-based TLS than 
one written in C with a thin Haskell wrapper...

(Of course I'll take the thin wrapper over no-TLS :)
