Like i said I never coded F# so I'm speaking from the experience of others.
However I don't think you can generate a WCF service reference (SOAP client
stub code) in F#. I would also assume if you were implementing your own
ILogger in log4net, you'd prefer C# or VB.NET because you'd be writing a
lot of boilerplate inherit a class and overwrite all these methods code.
Maybe someone who always codes in F# or ML languages would do that in F#.
The only functional programming I've done in javasccript closures and
anonymous delegates and lambas in C#. Perhaps if I ever grok monads I will
think different.
