Why is "written in C" considered such a great benefit by the Scrotwm
developer(s)?  Earlier today, I read this on the site:

    "On the other hand xmonad has great defaults, key bindings and
    xinerama support but is crippled by not being written in C."

What's up with that?  How does Haskell "cripple" xmonad?
