Alternatively, instead of trying to find out what the type is (which
might something completely unintelligible and unhelpful, due to
Haskell's type inferencing), use :: liberally on subexpressions to say
"I think the type here should be *blah*"; it will let you zoom in on the
compiler-human mismatch much more quickly. I think this is one of the
best ways of Haskell debugging.
