With "real Haskell" I ment strong type checking and indentation for
determining scope; without the former, it becomes a different experience
IMO. Avoiding runtime errors because types don't match is one the main
advantages of Haskell; without this, I'm afraid it is difficult to get a
good feeling of the Haskell programming language, be it Haskell98
