I'm not sure the ratio is very interesting, presumably they only need
one or at most a few.  Possibly they wouldn't be able to hire the
experienced Haskell programmer anyway (which is what you imply) and
then advertising for a Java programmer only is a good decision in that it
saves them some advertising cost... :-)

If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
