[Haskell-cafe] Best way to write endsWith

I have this function here:
> endsWith :: Eq a => [a] -> [a] -> Bool
> endsWith suffix list
> | lengthDifference < 0 = False
> | otherwise = (drop lengthDifference list) == suffix
> where lengthDifference = (length list) - (length suffix)
Would this be the preferred function argument order? Or is the reverse (ie.
endsWith list suffix) better?
I like being able to say "abc" `endsWith` "c", but I also like to be able to
say map (endsWith 't') ["cat", dog"] but I can't have both.
By the way, is there a better way to write this function to be clearer and
