[Haskell-cafe] A Procedural-Functional Language (WIP)

I must admit to some curiosity about this as well.  My recollection was
that the original approach was to use lazy streams
IO:: [request] -> [respose].

This can be managed a bit better using continuations (Perhaps continuations
can also be considered a separate approach?)

And now we have the IO Monad.  (which can be defined in terms of the stream
based approach but is not implemented that way)

The only other approach I am aware of is Clean's "Unique types".
