Just wanted to say this paper is excellent, and actually a great tool
for learning Haskell. I read it about 2 months after I'd been
introduced to Haskell, and it made quite a few things about the
language clear to me. It's clearly not a tutorial, but somehow knowing
parts of the history made the language clearer.

Thanks for your (and all the other authors') effort!
