Okay, I'll do it then. If I have a good weekend, perhaps I'll volunteer
a talk at AngloHaskell after all! :)
So what about syntax? I agree with your objections, so we've got
( <- expr ) -- makes sense, and I think it's unambiguous
``expr`` -- back-ticks make sense for UNIX shell scripters
The first is something Simon Peyton-Jones came up with (probably on-the-
fly) at OSCON, and I rather like it a lot; but I'm concerned about
ambiguity. The latter seems sensible as well. Any other ideas?
