[Haskell-cafe] A Haskell Tutorial

I've written a Haskell tutorial that walks the reader through the
implementation of a Scheme interpreter:
Instead of focusing on small examples at the Haskell REPL, it tries to show
the reader how to construct a real program with Haskell. It introduces
monads and IO early, and also includes error checking, state, file I/O, and
all the other "hard stuff" that's frequently omitted from beginner
Am looking for feedback on two main axes:
1.) Experienced Haskell users: is this more-or-less idiomatic Haskell? Did
I miss any library or language features that could make the programmer's job
easier? It was my first substantial Haskell program, so I worry that I may
have missed some common ways of doing things.
2.) Novices: is it clear and easy to understand? I had a tough time
figuring out how to do anything practical in Haskell, because most tutorials
omit IO, gloss over monads, and don't pay any attention to state or
error-checking. Does this rectify those shortcomings?
Comments/critiques are appreciated.
