AFAIK people are replacing code by writing other applications that
manipulate the same data as the legacy code but do not link with it. I
should ask my wife more about the structure of Peoplesoft. I know it's a
mixture of COBOL, PL/SQL, and Peoplecode on the server, and Java on the
client... No Haskell in it, though.
