Well, I must say that seeing my name close to David's for contributing
to a software project in Haskell is something that strikes me as quite
impressive. Tuomo introduced me to darcs, but it was darcs that
subverted my way of dealing with code, in any sense. And Haskell was
the consequence.

A tough one, though. At first it was hard. I had to step through that
dangerous monad-tutorial-writing disease, and, when health came back,
I was so weak I was just thinking to forget about it. If you can quit
smoking, you can do anything.

Till you find out you have to change WM.

Contributing to XMonad has been such a great learning experience. I'm
really grateful for that.


PS: I was forced to follow David as soon as I started to understand
where he was headed with the new class branch not only because I
wanted to steal some of his secrets on software engineering, bu also
because I did something similar with the Xmobar plugin infrastructure
when I wrote it...;)
