This would be very sadistic, yes – to people who would have to read code
written by 42's graduates! I urge you to avoid it.

They are also on a rather different level of difficulty from rewriting
Data.List and friends (which is what beginners often do on their first
day of learning). So, I don't understand what your intended level
actually is. If it's “can understand red-black trees and write them
without blindly copying code”, you could skip rewriting Data.List and go
* monad transformers
* the Cont monad
* free monads
On the other hand, if rewriting Data.List is necessary, then take a look
at Richard Bird's book Thinking Functionally With Haskell – it would be
a perfect fit for you.
