thank you for setting up this wiki page. Here is another benefit of having
it: it can be referenced in beginner's introductions to Haskell to help
newcomers to distinguish between subtleties and known quirks, to reduce
overall confusion. It would have helped me in any case.
I would like to add here another nitpick that was mentioned in the
aforementioned discussion: `:` and `::` in Haskell are "backwards" :).
