Haha, that's true. :)

When i write Haskell code, it force me write *framework* code.

Sometimes, i wrote dirty code quickly, 
Haskell will told me :

   "Hey, bad code! Rewrite it! I don't accept dirty code ... bla bla ...".
Then i rewrite my code to make it flexible and maintainable.

Once you build beautiful framework code, you will find your life is so
simple. :)
