I've done this for testing IO (reading and writing files):

> prop_serialize (E s) = 
>    let [s'] = unsafePerformIO (do writeFasta "/tmp/serialize_test" [s]
>                                   readFasta "/tmp/serialize_test")
>    in s == s'

I'm not sure if this is kosher, but at least the tests pass :-)

I (like everybody else?)'ve written a small driver for the tests, but
perhaps I should look at HUnit for a more general framework?
