> Sorry, small follow-up. It's certainly possible to make some kind of
catching function, e.g.:
catchPipe :: (MonadBaseControl IO m, Exception e) => Pipe l i o u m r -> (e
-> Pipe l i o u m r) -> Pipe l i o u m r
catchPipe (HaveOutput p c o) f = HaveOutput (catchPipe p f) c o
catchPipe (NeedInput p c) f = NeedInput (flip catchPipe f . p) (flip
catchPipe f . c)
catchPipe (Done r) _ = Done r
catchPipe (PipeM mp) f = PipeM $ Control.Exception.Lifted.catch (liftM
(flip catchPipe f) mp) (return . f)
catchPipe (Leftover p l) f = Leftover (catchPipe p f) l
I'm just not certain how useful this is in practice, as it doesn't really
give you any information on what else that Pipe was about to perform. So
you can't really just pick up where you left off.
