A more scary example:

  getLine :: World -> (World, String)

  getTwoLines :: World -> (World, String, String)
  getTwoLines world =
      let (world', line1) = getLine world
          (world'', line2) = getLine world -- oops, should use world' here
      in  (world'', line1, line2)

So we forgot about world', but used line1, which was produced together
with world'.
