I remember quite a few months ago, someone gave a presentation on
Haskell and he admitted that so far all he had used it for were shell
scripts.  He said that his Haskell shell scripts ran faster than his
shell scripts written in ?

So all he had used so far, was just the imperative part of Haskell.
