are you remember title of Wirth's book? "algorithms + data structures =
programs". i think that Haskell is ideal language for teaching programming
now (like Pascal was in 80's), because it teaches how to develop algorithms
instead of focusing on implementation details. of course, you are right
that fashion and availability drives actual teachers selection
