Neither it seems, did the original Haskell committee - that's why we have to 
muddle along with a confusing unary minus operator instead of proper 
negative literals - see the thread beginning 
http://www.haskell.org/pipermail/haskell-cafe/2006-August/017410.html for 
the latest exciting attempt to get rid of unary minus... ;-)
