Teasing works (as the teased, I'll accept it anyway :p).  As for what
Don was teasing me about: lemme first finish writing all these base
generic graph libraries, then I'll see about writing bindings to
external C libraries for graphs, etc.!

Especially if you're active in the community, etc.  I mean, it's still
possible to not know about hsc2hs, but it gets bandied about every now
