Hi Dennis,

I don't think that it's possible to have intuitive understandable error
messages for something as complex as a programming language like Haskell.

There even isn't something like intuitive unterstanding, because it's
alwasy based on knowledge and familiarity.

You have to learn the meaning of the error messages or what the possible
reasons for some kind of error might be.

I'm now even able to decode C++ template error messages, which might be
the most horrible error messages on earth ;).
