[Haskell-cafe] I think someone had a complicated program to use brackets for array indexing - is it possible to use a DSL for this?

If you teach them about how operators are normal functions in Haskell,
using an operator to index into an array makes the indexing operation less
magical—a big pedagogical boon, in my view. The fewer special cases in the
language you're teaching, the better, and looking similar to other
languages is not a good reason for a special case.

Especially since the similarity could be misleading!)

Good point (s)
