Hi, Michael.

Yes, I'd already noticed that ReaderT preceded Reader. Guess I'll have to check out the Indentity monad too. I hope it's not dependent upon yet another monad.  ;-)

Thanks for the link. I go there a lot.

Michael, you may want to see this section:

and also section titled "type vs. newtype vs. data" below. It has good explanation why there is
at least three keywords in Haskell to define types, and which of them do what. And how they do it.
