If there's DIY tooling involved, then yes that is pretty far behind.
I don't think that's necessary; I dimly recall somebody mentioned that 
Haskell does have a call interface to C code. The main challenge is to 
find ways to "Haskellize" those strictly imperative APIs so they become 
useful for the application programmer; I'd categorize that as 
"incommensurable" rather than "behind".
