    19  * ReadP and assosiated changes to the 'Read' class - the current Read specified by the report leaks memory like a fish and ReadP is signifigantly faster/better. We would also get a basic parsing library with the deal.

     21 * There are even better ways to improve the Read class.  The current signatures are just unhelpful - either you get a value or you 
     22   don't, with no indication of what went wrong if it could not be parsed.  A proper Read/Parse class should use an Either monad 
     23   to allow error messages to be collected, and returned to the user.  (I have a specific proposal in mind, currently in an experimental 
     24   implementation in the HaXml libraries. - Malcolm Wallace)
