Indeed, these days I think the main advantage of Haskell is not the  
feature set (the same features can be used nicely in Perl (well,  
nicely for Perl), or not-so-nicely in Python), but rather, the fact  
that Haskell is *designed* for such things, so it's syntax makes  
things that are verbose in Perl or Python natural.
