Yes :-(

I normally develop in Hugs, for a change I wanted to try GHCi. It's
also a project that has loads of pattern matching at a fairly complex
level, so the benefits offered by view-patterns and pattern-guards
were just too hard to pass up. I'm also using SYB and Uniplate on SYB
quite extensively.

Now we just need Haskell' to standardise the useful bits (pattern
guards, rank-2 types, deriving Data) throw away the junk (n+k,
monomorphism restriction) and I can write beautiful programs for all
Haskell thingies.



PS. I think I threw away Yhc when I imported Data.Map :-)
