Sounds just terrific! Thanks!

>     (i.e., inner pipeline stages).  The former is just a
>     type-restricted version of the latter.
>   * Parsing combinators provide detailed error reporting and support
>     LL(*) rather than LL(1) parsing, leading to fewer non-intuitive
>     parsing failures.  A couple of tricks avoid consuming excessive
>     memory for backtracking.
>   * Super-fast LL(1) parsing is also available through seamless
>     integration with attoparsec.
>   * A universal exception mechanism works across invocations of mtl
>     monad transformers, thereby unifying error handling.
>   * All pipe operators have uniform semantics, eliminating corner
>     cases.  In particular, if the writing end of a pipe fails, the
>     reading end always gets EOF, allowing it to clean up resources.
>   * One can catch exceptions thrown by any contiguous subset of
>     stages in a pipeline.  Moreover, enumerator exception handlers
>     can resume downstream stages that haven't failed.
>   * The package is full of useful iteratees and enumerators,
>     including basic file and socket processing, parsec-like
>     combinators, string search, zlib/gzip compression, SSL, HTTP, and
>     "loopback" enumerator/iteratee pairs for testing a protocol
>     implementation against itself.
> Please enjoy.  I'd love to hear feedback.
