Sorry, I misunderstood you.  I thought you meant a Windows group
within the Haskell community, not within your company.

Honestly, what I wrote wasn't directed at you.  As I mentioned before,
writing code as a Unix sysadmin has very different priorities than
writing for many other problem domains.  Most of your code wouldn't
make sense outside a Unix context, whereas bytestrings, tries, or
graph libraries would.
