Because the ability to change the programming in the field is important. A
lot of the configuration is pure functions that get iterated over the state
to produce new state, and expressing those in Haskell is where I think this
can win. Ok, there'd be an advantage to writing it in Haskell in the first
place, but that's a hard sell. On the other hand, replacing a text file in
INI or XML or YAML or some ad-hoc format that specifies what is, when all
is said and done, a pure function that takes the state of the hardware as
input with an actual Haskell function, that I think I can sell.
