> Interesting, I appreciate your point of view.   My experience with Lazy IO is that its non-detereminism breaks down the algebraic/equational intuition.  In order to manage handle resources, I must have in mind too many operational details.  I feel that iteratee IO encapsulates these in nice compositional combinators.  I agree that it's not very beautiful, though.  My feeling is that it is not quite finished.  Perhaps there are a couple of more insights that will make it really nice.

I think laziness (IO and otherwise) would be perfect if only it was
visible somehow. Perhaps it could be signified by a type in some
future Haskell?
