I'm not a fan of cryptic variable names, either, and I try to use
descriptive names wherever I can. But in Haskell...
- ... you often have variables, which have a scope of far less than a
line such as in "map (\(x, (_, y)) -> (x, y) ..." (cleaning
intermediate results from a list).
- ... things often get very abstract, so that it just feels wrong
matching on, say, (socket:sockets) instead of (x:xs).
Früher hieß es ja: Ich denke, also bin ich.
Heute weiß man: Es geht auch so.
