I agree.

The part that I'm having trouble with is monads and the associated
operators (liftm comes to mind, it seems to be somehow related).  I read
Hal Daume's tutorial.  Do you have advice what else I can read to grok?

(And I'm having trouble to understand the relationship between "<-" and
"=".  Apparently, "<-" somehow implies that "statements" are "executed"
in some order.  But Haskell tries really hard to hide the fact that
there are statements and that there is such as thing as execution.  As
Haskell is based on lambda calculus, I am not surprised -- there are no
statements and there is no order of execution in lambda calculus.  So
Haskell tries so hard to hide them that I can't find them...)
