just as an addition to the discussion (one week ago or so) about Haskell
being defined as a non-strict rather than lazy language: in that context
it struck me as odd that Section 6.2 of the Report says `seq` is used to
avoid "unneeded laziness". The only other uses of "lazy" seem to appear
in the context of irrefutable patterns, getContents, and a source
comment for the function transpose in the List library.

Ciao, Janis.
