Excuse my pedantry, but: writeToList -> write_toList.
I think the third equation needs to be:
> unCamel (a:b:cs@(c:_))
> | isLower a && isUpper b && isLower c = a : '_' : toLower b : unCamel cs
so that the third character is not ignored in subsequent parses.
By the way, I like camelCase because I think that in most cases you
*don't* want to break identifiers up into their component words - you
read and understand what the function does once, and then you use it
as a word in its own right. Any resemblance to actual English is
really just a mnemonic of sorts.
