Executive Summary:

take a jr programmer who has never seen Haskell before.  Give him 8 days with
the online manual.  Then tell him you get to make a Geometric Region Server
for the US Nacy Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC). When he was done,
surprise, surprise, the evaluators thought that the code he submitted
was only pseudo-code, requirements.  No. Working Haskell.  His version
was faster and done more quickly than other versions, written in more 
standard languages like Ada and C++.

VHLL rock.
