That's where we all started.  Just direct any questions you have to
the list.

The big pro of [haskell] is that you have to do less compiling
yourself.  This should actually not be underestimated due to the need
to re-compile all dependants on updates.

Cabal on the other hand offers you more control, but then
there is nothing stopping you from using a combination of both.

Most software today is very much like an Egyptian pyramid with
millions of bricks piled on top of each other, with no structural
integrity, but just done by brute force and thousands of slaves.
