Agreed. GHCi also produces what can be perceived as "odd" output when
typing, for instance, :i +
-- + is a method in class Num
infixl 6 +
(+) :: forall a. (Num a) => a -> a -> a

What I'm referring to is of course the "forall a." which confuses newcomers.

Personally, I'd also like a graphical interface with similar features
as winhugs (mainly the "recently opened files list" and a graphical
way to alter settings), but maybe that's just me...
