I'm a bit puzzled to find no sub-string search in the Haskell libraries
(unless there's some neat composition of the existing Data.List functions
that I've missed). Google doesn't help much either. I've found a KMP

I'm after something that'll report the position of the first occurrence,
like Java's String.indexOf().
