Hi Everyone

just wanted to drop by to say how much I like the new lambda case extension. 
I use it all the time and I just *love* how it relieves me from conjuring up 
dummy variables, which makes teh code not only esier to write but also to 

A big, huge thank you to the ghc developers. This has been sooooo long on my 
wish list.

Also much appreciated and long awaited: tuple sections (though I use them 
not quite as often).

Both should *definitely* go into Haskell'13.

Of course, thank you also for all the other beautiful stuff in ghc-7.6.1, 
especially PolyKinds, DataKinds etc.

GHC is just simply amazing. You guys RULE THE WORLD!
