comment Is Tracking Software Usage Illegal?
Interesting question, but legal matters are almost always "too localized".

comment Best practice in setting return value (use else or?)
I think it's just a matter of taste. After some serious exposure to Haskell i find the former easier to read and understand. I use the latter only for precondition-checks like "if a is None: return None"

comment Why do people put '\n' at the beginning of strings?
Ah, haven't realized, that printf() flushes on newlines, in contrast to C++ streams.

Do you mean "flushing" in the sense of "new line" or as in fflush()?

comment TDD vs. Productivity
To me, writing tests too early is like optimizing too early. You might be working hard on testing code you will remove in the future anyway.

comment Spreadsheet or writing an application?
@Rook: Gathering the necessary data was by far the biggst task. I don't think that composing those few functions in Haskell would take significantly longer than dragging and dropping formulas in a spreadsheet (e.g. in Excel "sum()", in Haskell "sum"). Can you elaborate where you see the line to "overkill" and how you define "overkill"?

In advertisement for the same reason a different people proof-reads the final product than the one who created it.
