BTW, the Haskell' wiki says its adoption status is 'probably no' which I
find unfortunate. IMHO recursive do is a /very/ useful and practical
feature and the cons listed on
http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/haskell-prime/wiki/RecursiveDo don't weigh
enough against that. Ok, just my (relatively uninformed) 2 cents.
