Hey, why has the front-page already been changed then? I don't like 
neither this nor the new slogan.

Concerning what slogan should be on the front page, I prefer technical 
terms to buzzwords.

   myReadText = filter (not . buzzword)

In any case: it's not our task to convince others by means of an 
enterprisey formulation, people are free to choose. If they don't want 
it, so be it. We provide data points ("I have written a big but robust 
program, it's called <insert name here>", "We have a FFI and its use is 
explained here", "look, this quicksort function is so beautiful") but 
judgment is what everybody has to do for himself.
