It seems we share the preference for 'case', 'let', 'map', 'filter' and 
'fold'. :-)

I prefer a definite choice between all_lower_case_with_underscore and 
camelCase identifier style.

'you should probably"'  -- should probably what?

Is the function size restriction still sensible for Haskell? I think 
Haskell functions should be at most a few lines, but not "one or two 
screenfuls of text".
