it's why i asked beginners. it seems that we all go through times
when ghc errmsgs looks cryptic but then we start to live with it and
forget the first period

actually, i don't have much problems with errrmsgs now, but trying to
grok how i interpret them i've found that i mainly use *position*
part of message, it's enough for me most times :)
