  Hi Shae!  Thanks for your comments, and i agree totally! 
  It would indeed be very interesting, and I tend to agree too that speed 
might be helped if this were done. 
  ( and yes - I'd love to try an arrow-based Haskell too! ).  
  While I was mulling this over this morning, I was thinking how (or even 
"if" ) an EBNF grammar (Haskell's in this case) could be represented in terms 
or arrows.  I stopped pretty quickly as it made my head hurt just thinking 
about it ... :-))
