Some people (no idea how many, though at least 1 ;) seem to
prefer something like this:
cmp `on` conv = \x y -> conv x `cmp` conv y
sortBy (compare `on` fst)
groupBy ((==) `on` isSpace)
though some people (at least Henning Thielemann) prefer to call
contains some discussion about it.
Nobody can be exactly like me. Even I have trouble doing it.
