Quoting haskell

supposed warning sign
Well, Haskell is getting really interesting. I always wanted a language that allows me to intersperse fragments of other syntaxes (especially for a message syntax; think s-expr), and on the haskell workshop was an interesting talk about how to introduce exactly that for expresssions and even for pattern matching.

Right now I struggling with the right way to approximate the same in java, and bump into acceptance problems from some sides, whether I go via annotations or some code generation.

It's not that haskell isn't still rather foreign on me. I think I have a hint of understanding monads, but this doesn't go anywhere near how to design them.
