Notice I'm not the OP show suggested porting pacman to Haskell. I came
into this thread after the facts and tried hard to make the original
suggestion as a part of the larger POV in favor of high-level languages.

Also, I don't want to flame and rather keep the discussion out of free
attacks against the current team of developers. I took part of this
thread only because I've already been faced to pacman limitations in its
current form.
