I must say I agree here. I spent 10 years programming in prolog before
I tried haskell. Most of my problems with haskell are because it has a
rather opaque performance model (e.g. when should you use tail
recursion, and when should you not). But I happily acknowledge that my
experience is probably atypical. ;-)

Dr Thomas Conway      You are beautiful; but learn to work,
