[Haskell-cafe] Left fold enumerator - a real pearl overlooked?

Hi all,

in the last few months I was looking for haskell database library, 
eventually settling for HDBC (thanks John btw).

Takusen also caught my eye although I even failed installing it.

Nevertheless a particular property of takusen, left-fold-enumerator, 
also sparked  my interest and I tried to follow it up.

I had the impression this is something of relevance but something that 
is not mentioned or made use of often. There are actually only a few 
references on the net and most of those by one person only, Oleg.

There was one post from John Goerzen about Haskell HTTP libraries in 
which he hinted using left-fold enumerators.

Anyway what I'm saying is that the whole topic is somewhat off the radar 
of the larger haskell community, how come, or am I merely overestimating 
its relevance and usefulness?
