My rationale for typoes not being a problem (both your 
example, and the one Malcolm Wallace posted to the "empty 
case" ticket) is that GHC will give you a warning anyway 
(and that warning should be on by default).  Should we be 
worrying about the situation being worse for other compilers 
that don't have good warning-systems (e.g. I don't think 
Hugs has warnings at all)?
