Maybe a crosstab app? Say, read in some csv data and do a crosstab of

I was looking at doing one myself quite a while back, but I'm an
*ultra-newbie* when it comes to Haskell, and such an app would be a real
handful for me... :-) 

I don't know if it'll help at all (as Python is very different to
Haskell) but here's a link to a Python "recipe" which does this - 


A Haskell equivalent would (imo) be a *great* example/appetiser for
Haskell. Very useful for newbies too, as even for a simple thing like
reading data line-by-line, it's really useful to have an
easy-to-understand example. A crosstab app mightn't be that easy to
_do_, but I think it would be easy to understand.  

Just my 2c worth ...
