Is there a tool anywhere which can figure out how to construct a
function with a specific type signature? Hoogle works if the thing you
seek is a single function, but not so much if you need to throw several
(For example, the signature "x -> [x -> y] -> [y]" can be implemented by
\ x -> map ($ x), but this is initially non-obvious.)
