I believe that Marcin wishes to prove the same point that I want to: 
namely, Clean encourages use of strictness by making it easier to use 
(via language annotations).  At the risk of sounding ignorant and 
arrogant, I think the Haskell community in general does not understand 
the importance of syntactic sugar to make such tasks easier.
