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.
