Sorry Keean, but throughout this entire thread I have had the feeling
that you are determined to misunderstand and misrepresent just about
everything I have written. You then present counter arguments to the
straw men you have created and seem to expect some kind of response
from me. I'm sure this is all boring the pants of other Haskell list
subscribers so I don't propose to continue this game.

I believe I have made my position perfectly clear to anyone who actually
takes the trouble to read my posts with an open mind and understand what
I am saying. So I have nothing more to add.
