Hi Jon,

For what I've talked with Matthew on twitter you could do something to avoid the "staircasing" as described here:


As you can see there, you could avoid those nested case expressions. 

If this is a joke from Matthew I don't know. For me is a pretty cool implementation of Monads in Erlang.

Hope this helps, and I hope I understood something too :)
