@sir true, for end user software. It's insanely good at specific things, like building parsers (parsec), but yeah the bloat is to much to swallow for most situations.
Also, pandoc is a beast with support for almost every widely used document path. This is less a problem with Haskell, and more a problem with using a less featureful doc generator like haddock, which is actually the standard tool used for GHC and supported by Hoogle. Actually, pandoc isn't even a documentation generator but rather a document converter, so I'd imagine that haddock is still used to generate the docs and then pandoc to produce PDFs or something, in which case it *should* be an optional dependency.
@sir Closely related language Idris looks better than Haskell if we are talking about practicalities like executables size etc.
It may be somewhere between C and Go in this regard.
And it is striving to become systems language eventually.
I believe it is as capable of parsing tasks as Haskell without crazy overhead (MB-sized helloworld) of ghc.
