Hi Shae! Thanks for your comments, and i agree totally!
It would indeed be very interesting, and I tend to agree too that speed
might be helped if this were done.
( and yes - I'd love to try an arrow-based Haskell too! ).
While I was mulling this over this morning, I was thinking how (or even
"if" ) an EBNF grammar (Haskell's in this case) could be represented in terms
or arrows. I stopped pretty quickly as it made my head hurt just thinking
about it ... :-))
