I'm not quite following that - are you saying Haskell, OCaml are "Java with the serial numbers filed off?" Or that the ability to be an expert by the time you start applies only to the Java-esque languages but not to the languages you named?

    The latter. If I were hiring for a Haskell position, I wouldn't hire anyone who didn't know Haskell but claimed that he or she would be an expert by the start date -- unless the start date were a year in the future.

      That makes more sense. I read your post as meaning the opposite - maybe a missing negative in there or something :)
