The exception here is the still-evolving bindings to e.g. BLAS.  It's  
not at all clear to me that including BLAS in the Haskell Platform is  
going to help with this; more important is having people who  
understand BLAS, who probably already have it, and making BLAS libs  
available won't help someone like me understand it well enough to work  
on the bindings.
