I think that's Haskell zeal speaking. :-)

Not that I don't appreciate your zeal (I do), and I'm definitely  
excited about the stuff you're working on, but we're a long way from  
having stable, mature, well-designed libraries that are fit for  
production use in high-level messaging applications. In this niche  
(and quite a few other networking-related niches), Erlang is the clear  
winner, at least for the immediate future (in the long-term, the  
purity of Haskell could lead to some high-performance, robust  
approaches not possible for Erlang).
