For the kinds of applications that you would like to build.

Certainly having more libs enables more apps and that stuff would enable
your applications. Fortunately it's not an all-or-nothing thing. There
are plenty of applications we can do now. For the commercial software
I've developed in Haskell, all the libraries I've needed were available
and sufficiently mature: decent data structures, binary serialisation,
fast random numbers, date/time handling, GUI lib.
