Haskell is growing in popularity among mathematicians. As one blogger put it:

"after my involving myself in the subject, one thing that stands out is the relatively low distance between thought expressed in my ordinary day-to-day mathematical discourse, and thought expressed in Haskell code."

and

"How can Haskell not be the programming language that all mathematicians should learn?"

To paraphrase Hilbert ("Physics is too complicated for Physicists"), the relative obscurity of Haskell (a language with a strict notion of functions, higher-order-functions, and types) amongst mathematicians may be that:

"Haskell is too mathematical for many mathematicians."
