Yes, good!  

Also it should be "its" rather than "it's", but I didn't want to reply
to my own message since it was meant as a draft to work with.

I'd like to turn this into a refinement of a concrete proposal.  I
skimmed the original thread and it pretty much diverged into experience
reports or meta-level discussions on what or how to advertise Haskell.
This has its place, but I think we can get to a description that is good
enough for now and addresses Don's issues mentioned in the
thread-starting message.

So, I would welcome more concrete adjustments to my proposal.
