[Haskell-cafe] An HSH case study

Some of you may be interested in my recent blog post[1], where I discuss
porting hg-buildpackage[2] from a set of shell scripts to a set of
Haskell programs that use HSH.

To my surprise, I achieved a 20% *reduction* in source lines of code,
while doing the exact same tasks.

I guess I have to consider switching more code to HSH.  Purely in the
interests of science, of course ;-)
