Yes, I was forecasting a little...

Concerning conduit, yes it's not another implementation of Oleg's
iteratees, yet its API looks a lot like 'enumerators'.
Plus it aims at solving the same problem, only the implementation that
differs (roughly state variables instead of pure closure-based automata)
