imho it's true for short-term, false for a longer terms. we need
different haskell platforms, otherwise haskell will eventually die,
and core libraries such as FPS are essential part of these platforms

and according to my experience, writing s/w in portable way is easy if
you care about it from the beginning of project. adding portability
later costs much more
