Perfectly right, and thanks to you and the many others who mailed
me about it for catching out my silly mistake:-(.

The Edinburgh compiler is for *STANDARD ML*; the Glasgow compiler
is for *HASKELL*.  Whether I mixed up Scottish cities or major
functional programming languages, it was still a silly error to
make, and I apologize to Scotland, FP enthusiasts, and the
readership at large.
