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.
