First of all do you know how this ranking is build? It's an agglomeration
of nonsense values which aim to give the language trend.
Maybe Scala has benefited of the JVM or maybe it has profited of the
auto-assigned "functional" because some communities, like the Haskell
community, have heavily worked for that during decades.
The only side-effect of a growth in this ranking will attract some addicted
to Resumé Driven-Development.
Popular or not, you can do anything you want with Haskell and no ranking
will change that.
