Just in case the Eindhoven Haskell meetup group is in fact inspired by E W
Here is pugofer <https://github.com/rusimody/gofer>
The summary of its history and motivations here
Particularly a feel for it could be had by reading its standard prelude

Summary of summary: Inspired by EWD's writing function application not as
f(x) or as f x but as f.x
here is pugofer's version of map

map : (a -> b) -> [a] -> [b]
map.f.[] = []
map.f.(x::xs) = f.x :: map.f.xs

PS This is 25 year old code... It still works but is not really
type-comparable to ghc ;-)
