I chose one over the other because it's the link the author (of the  
original book and of the code) provides from his (new) homepage. And  
because taxing archive.org when a valid alternative is available seems  
like poor form.

This is a problem in general with Haskell code, though, since such a  
large portion of it is created by professors or current students: if/ 
when they leave their current college/university, the links tend to  
break. I don't know that there's a solution except vigilance.
