Well, from an academic viewpoint, it's very interesting to see a  
function defined as a composition of functions. From a practical  
viewpoint, it's just really handy. It saves you a lot of tedious  
typing, and that's basically what progamming languages are supposed  
to do. That's exactly what I love about haskell: it saves me from a  
lot of unnecessary typing. After all, I'm a lazy programmer ;)
