That’s not a limitation of Network.CGI; it’s just the way CGI always
works, no matter what language you use.

You’d need a Haskell compiler that targets Android; I don’t know whether
such a thing exists yet.
(Of course, keep in mind that if the CGI script is running on another
computer, such as <http://andersk.mit.edu/greet.cgi> , you will still be
able to visit it and use it from a browser running on Android. That’s the
point of CGI; only the server needs to know how to run the code.)
