[OT]Help with translating Error Monads to C++

Currently in the c++ developers ml, there's a discussion of
a proposed Expected<T> or an Either<L,R> template:

http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lib.boost.devel/242496

A lot of the discussion appears, at least to me, to not be
aware of how haskell handles similar situations.  The
above link was to my post suggesting they try to emulate
the way haskell solves the problem using Monads.

However, I've only briefly dabbled in haskell; hence, my
responses on that thread are probably missing something.

I invite anyone on this list to please provide insights
on this particular thread in the boost.devel mailing
list.

-kind regards,
Larry
