I'm talking about poking around here randomly:


... and trying to figure out what a given library does — not for the
sake of selecting it among other options (the Platform idea), but just
as part of getting a grip on Haskell's "standard library", as it were.
 Put another way, I'm doing the opposite of the Platform — instead of
saying "I have requirement X, what library would be the best match?",
I'm asking "Hmm, hello library Y, what could I use you for?"
