[Haskell-cafe] The Lisp Curse

I think what Andrew meant is that it's not a good idea to have big
pile of different implementations of the same library, and all trying
to solve the very same problem.

I see this kind of problem in the java community. It seems that
developers have a need to create everything from scratch more than
making existing ones better.

Short history, for example, why do we have to have N libraries to read
a file? can't we have just one damn good one?
