Cool! I'll check it out. However, I'm using some GHC extensions, so that is
indeed a show stopper :)

Yes, but also that a compiler should directly read the syntax tree; the

round-trip editing between text <-> AST. Nothing new really, I used to work
with a 6502 assembler on the Commodore 64 that did exactly that :)
