The number of applications requiring the implementation of a custom  
web server is an insignificant fraction of the number of applications  
requiring a messaging system. I don't think anyone would dispute  
Haskell's ability to do low-level, raw networking, of the type that  
few people actually need to do. It's the higher level stuff where  
there's a huge amount of room for improvement.
