Don't forget about QuickCheck which allows us property based 
automatically generated random testing.  With QuickCheck, one can 
practice much more powerful form of TDD, and this is a already a common 
practice in Haskell development.  QuickCheck works well with pure 
functions, and HUnit is more for the IO related actions.
