This strategy worked very well for me when I learned Ruby three years
ago. Ruby became my scripting language of choice. I learned Haskell a
year ago (and forgot most of it again), although I didn't have a

have no clear idea what to do with it. I hope it works out for O'Caml
and Mozart some time in the future.
