Sure, nor does it write a book chapter about some practical usage. I
mean (tongue in cheek) that the other ressource, nor even some proper
annoucement, provide all that.

I still remember the UHC annoucement (a (nearly) complete Haskell 98
compiler) thread where most of it was about lack of support for n+k

But the bullet list above was to point Andrew a few places where he
could have learn about Text.
