ginsu is a pretty big application written in haskell. It's code is not
the best, I wouldn't try to learn from it. but it is pretty big and
complicated and used by a lot of people who could care less what
language it is in, they just want something that works. It also touches
on several real world concerns, cryptography, user interface,
interactive performance, ugly (and the few elegant) hacks to keep memory
usage down, binary serialization, network protocols...
