I seriously doubt it. Haskell programming is as much about
programming to the typing system as it is functional programming 
(possibly more). So switching to a dynamically typed system is highly
unlikely. It's pretty unlikely that many of them would even accept
such a system as viable at all.
Functional programmers typically think they don't need OO as well .
So if you truly believe that changing expressions that look like:
(((someObject message: 1) message: 2) message: 3)
someObject message: 1 >>= message: 2 >>= message: 3
is going to overcome all those issues, and bring in all those
PhD's.... well, it calls in your previous claim that your arguments
are logical, etc. :)
