[Haskell-cafe] HSpec vs Doctest for TDD

Well, for me TDD seems to be a poor substitute for type safety.

And I specifically mean the level of type safety Haskell provides. In other languages TDD could be a good thing (although I value explorative programming too much), but in Haskell I think it's a waste of time.
