Also have a look at smallcheck (hackage) then.
It has been announced on the haskell mailinglist recently;

"SmallCheck is similar to QuickCheck (Claessen and Hughes 2000-) but
instead of testing for a sample of randomly generated values, SmallCheck
tests properties for all the finitely many values up to some depth,
progressively increasing the depth used"
