Um... Does anybody else find it interesting that we are "showing the
beauty of Haskell" by attempting to construct the most terse, cryptic,
unmaintainable tangle of point-free code that the combined mindpower of
the entire mailing list can produce?
Yes, there is much to be said for the power and brevity of Haskell. But
you *can* go over the top here, people! o_O
Keep it short _yet comprehensible_, IMHO.
