Don't you find yourself looking at the documentation each time you want to write a loop in a Makefile ? Cause I do, and each time I think : "what can't I script this in haskell or caml ?".

If anyone here is looking for a graph search / GHC API / Unix filesystem / parsec exercise, and has got the time to glue all this together : DO IT !
