Welcome to issue 250 of the HWN, an issue covering crowd-sourced bits
of information about Haskell from around the web. This issue covers the
week of October 28 to November 3, 2012.
Quotes of the Week
* Cale: A list is a bit like a loop which hasn't happened yet. This
operation is similar to "how do I make the 5th iteration of my loop
do something different from the others?"
* broombs: Why are there multiple packages for EitherT?
broombs: edwardk: which is the better one?
edwardk: broombs: either
And today, we have our first quote submited via twitter! Thank you

* @kmett:We now generate pretty core but have ugly code.
