I would rather see
nubSorted :: Eq a => [a] -> [a]
| x1 == x2 = nubSorted (x1:xs)
nubSorted (x:xs) = x : nubSorted xs
nubSorted  = 
You can then nubSorted . sort, but you can also use it on data that you
know is already sorted (or at least data in which all the dupes you want
to eliminate are in clumps).
