[Haskell-cafe] about Haskell code written to be "too smart"

I'd love to help newbies get the hang of Haskell without having to jump in
the deep (and smart-infested) end first.  And I'd love for people to keep
writing smart code for non-newbies to enjoy.

Perhaps a practical suggestion would be some wiki pages devoted to pointing
out code with various learning qualities, to help haskellers of all levels
of experience learn effectively.
