Haskell is growing really fast (in community, libraries and tools). But, Vasili,
Dons pushes a lot into Arch, so although he gives a correct statement, you
shouldn't build your point of view relying only on that part of his answer....

Just rember the number about the Haskell libraries (and the fact it is
growing), not
the particular state in Arch (which seems a very nice place to use
haskell, I'm new to
Arch for a few days now...).
