I started with writing a corresponding list for python:

As you will see I mention there that ÷ mapped to divMod is one but hardly
the only possibility.

That list is mostly about math, not imperative features and so carries over
from python to haskell mostly unchanged.

Please (if you have 5 minutes) glance at it and give me your comments. I
may then finish a similar one for Haskell.
