FWIW, I find the same phenomenon with Edison.  I get very little feedback 
about it positive or negative; I really have no idea how many people are 
using it.  I guess people are more willing to roll their own data structures 
or use the standard libs.

It might be from a desire to limit dependencies.  If that's the case, perhaps 
continuing cabal developments will change that.
