I'd go along with that too.

The "advanced Haskell stuff" is a tool. It solves particular problems. 
You learn about it when you have one of the problems it's applicable to. 
If you don't have one of those problems, keep it simple. ;-)

I would also point out that some of this stuff is far, far less 
complicated than it seems. It's just very difficult to find 
comprehendable explanations for some of this stuff; people seem to 
assume that anybody who touches Haskell will "just know" what Skolem 
variables are, for example...
