I guess we're spoiled by the type checker catching all our mistakes.

Since I recently discovered the new and wonderful world of C-c C-l in
haskell-mode, I wonder if it'd be hard (or if anybody already done so!)
to incorporate this for literate-style Haskell in email?

Wouldn't it be great if I could, just prior to sending a message, hit
C-c C-l to load the *message* buffer in a Haskell process to check that
it indeed works as expected, and if you, on reading it, could hit the
same key combination to do the same?

The birdstep-style might cause difficulties given the same mark's use as
standard quoting indicator.  And of course, most people use more
pedestrian, Turing-inhibited MUAs these days... 

If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
