[Haskell-cafe] Getting Haskell in the top 20

Using the words "Haskell" and "programming" in emails probably helps  
getting Haskell a few places up, but I think there is much more needed to  
get it in the top twenty. Things like a GHC backend that produces Java  
bytecode and/or Common Intermediate Language, commercial support, or  
Microsoft delivering Haskell in a Visual Studio environment. These are  
things that will raise much more interest in Haskell in the commercial  
world, and therefore would also interest more programmers.
