Okay, i respect that position.

Anyway, we do not want to rewrite GNU Emacs in another language.

i'm certainly not arguing for that! Indeed, i've made several posts to Reddit criticising that idea on various grounds, even going so far as to
write a satirical post about the notion of rewriting Emacs in
JavaScript. i only mentioned Haskell in response to (what seemed to me to be) the implication that discouraging global mutable state makes it
inherently impractical to deal with concepts such as buffers.

At any rate, i'll not comment any further on this issue here.
