Since I was complaining recently that a big problem with static typing is that compilers
for languages with "advanced" type systems tend to emit totally baffling errors, I thought 
I should point out that there is a very interesting-sounding project to develop a Haskell 
compiler targeted at Haskell newbies.The authors state that "Quality of the error messages
has been the main concern both in the choice of the language features [NB: it is actually 
a Haskell subset, at least for now] and in the implementation of the compiler." Helium lives
