Yeah, fair enough.  I studied mathematics, not Haskell's Data.*  
hierarchy.  The potential for confusion is pretty strong, especially  
since Haskell uses other mathematical terms (functor, monad, etc) with  
the mathematical meaning in mind.

Then again, Haskell type classes are not proper classes -- they're  
constructible sets of constructible types, at best.  Integrals are  
integer-like, and Haskell derivatives are programming languages like  
Adga. ;-)
