I was about to say "yeah, but RWH isn't that good" - and then I noticed 
who I'm speaking to. ;-)

So let me rephrase that: RWH isn't as good as I was hoping it would be. 
Still, since I haven't written anything better myself, I guess I don't 
get to criticise...

In any case, surely the Typeclassopedia would be a far better place to 
comprehend Applicative?

So hsc2hs is related to writing C bindings? Well, that'll be why I've 
never heard of it then; I don't understand C. (Nor do I particularly 
want to... I chose Haskell.)

Besides, why in the world do Haskell libraries have to involve C? I've 
written and released several libraries on Hackage, none of which are in 
any way related to C. Not every library is just a C binding, you know...
