  • elliott: ... [a] is more of a control structure than a data structure.
  • Cale: Basically, we've known how to implement first class functions efficiently for 20 or 30 years now, and we've known about their importance to abstraction in programming since before the advent of electronic computers. There's no excuse to still be writing new programs in languages without them.
  • edwardk: When someone throws an exception at you, duck.
  • luite: I think it uses levenshtein distance (he invented this distance because nobody could spell his name correctly)
  • edwardk: 'hey ghc devs can you fix this thing that might or might not be a bug so we can break a huge pile of invariants in your compiler to put go faster stripes on something nobody uses? k thx'
