I think you could.  What you need to convince a strict programmer of is
that laziness gives you modularity.  The Graham Hutton Sudoku solver is
a nice example, but it'd be cool if we had a similar example that was
less cheesy than Sudoku.

A dynamic programming or memoing example might not hurt, either.
