[Haskell-cafe] Nice clean code example?

I have no idea what you consider clean. I have some ugly code that
shows off some Haskell features:


I think it shows off:
- Introducing types to create a language
- Explicit IO, allowing for clear contract exposure to the user of the library?
- defaultHighlighters is a subset of defaultInputPaths through a
simple map allowing for easily exposing constrained subsets of code
(not data)??

if I would force myself to continue, the number of question marks
would just increase, so I'll stop here.

Best of luck!
