I have been experimenting with using Yesod to throw together a web application or two. My experience so far has been broadly positive—if you like computers to check things for you, I recommend it.^{1} That said, watching the full chain of dependencies fly past was moderately entertaining:^{2}
 parsec3.1.2

An excellent parsercombinator library, widely imitated. This wouldn’t be funny, except…
 attoparsec0.10.1.0

Another excellent parsercombinator library, inspired by parsec.
 baseunicodesymbols0.2.2.3

This defines a bunch of Unicode aliases for standard functions with boring ASCII names. Why write:
x `elem` xs
when you could write:
x ∈ xs
Invaluable!
 utf8light0.4.0.1 and utf8string0.3.7

Two UTF8 encoding libraries!
 semigroups0.8

“In mathematics, a semigroup is an algebraic structure consisting of a set together with an associative binary operation. A semigroup generalizes a monoid in that there might not exist an identity element. It also (originally) generalized a group (a monoid with all inverses) to a type where every element did not have to have an inverse, thus the name semigroup.”
