Well, I wanted something simple and it doesn't get any simpler than
this! Thanks a lot, Andrew!

I don't know what percentage of Haskell people have an interest in LaTeX
(or literate programming, for that matter), but it seems to me the
solution you're offering should be put somewhere in the doc - or Wiki
perhaps. It's a fundamental complement to the .lhs format.

Many thanks again,
