I saw this trick recently for a job advertised locally to me, in
Melbourne.  I was initially pretty excited that someone in this city
was actually advertising for Haskell programmers, until I realised
they needed to be good at Javascript and Perl so they could work on
their web apps.  Argh, I didn't bother applying.
