If you can make a reasonable estimate of student numbers, say via
registered for the course, then go ahead and report it. Otherwise, it's
just to leave the course out of the survey--too much of an unknown quantity.
2006 is not an option for "since when...", but just put 2005. I'll
understand it to include
the entire academic year starting in 2005.

If, for example, one student out of a large class gives a talk about
Haskell, then I would
say no--the "Haskell content" in that case is trivial. If all the
students give seminars
about Haskell programs they have written, then the answer is clearly
yes. You have to
make a judgement here: is Haskell used as a medium of instruction to a
extent? If so, include the course. You can always add an explanatory
