I like to think that Haskell is a language where aesthetics matter.  So,
in my opinion this is indeed a horrible consequence.

I find mixing of symbols and letters in identfiers to be in itself
aesthetically inferior, and there's already more than enough
whitespace-dependent parsing warts in Haskell.

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