Huh..being a Haskell newbie (still) learning the language, I can only
dream about such productivity :-)

Nonetheless, I am very happy seeing the progress of your work and
looking forward to help (in any way) so that Haskell get a very solid
framework for developing database-aware applications making it (even)
more useful/attractive for wider audience of programmers.

For now, I can only say: thank you!
