By the way, for those wondering why Jon Harrop would say such an unusual
thing on the Haskell list, have a look at his contributions over on the
OCaml list,


Some choice quotes:

   "almost all of the examples of Haskell's use in industry are fakes"

   "nobody has ever done anything significant using Haskell"

Jon's the primary source of FUD against Haskell and its community, as he
goes around promoting his site in other functional programming
communities. This kind of behaviour's been going on for a few years now,

It's all rather disappointing.
