And this, gentlemen, is just one of the reasons why Haskell gets
labelled as "scary".
It's very hard to explain what this enigmatic riddle-like statement
actually *means* without a very long exposition. (Heck, *I* haven't
worked out how to "borrow from the future" yet...)
[The other reason, of course, is that Haskell's syntax isn't C / C++ /
Java / VB... which suits me just fine! ;-) ]
