To be fair, the most fervent disciples of the Church of Haskell would use Haskell I'd think :)

I only scanned the paper, but I get the impression the title was chosen specifically to grab attention. "An empirical study comparing the use of C++ lambdas versus C++ STL iterators and programmer experience" wouldn't get eyes on their presentation, and eventually, being posted to HN...well, it would, but they'll surely get more reads/downloads this way.

Clickbaiting for conference proceedings, who would have known.

Such a title wouldn't be right, either. Their poor iterators don't seem to act like real iterators.
