How can you possibly know that?

I use them because they make the code *MORE* readable.

Some versions of the 'view' idea can be used to fake n+k patterns,
so I imagine that this argument will be used to ensure that UHC
never ever supports anything resembling views.

If I want something that's almost a Haskell compiler but not
quite, with some interesting extensions, I've known where to
find Clean for a long time.
