Thank you for your contributions to the Haskell community. Your work has done a lot, especially for working Haskell programmers like myself and my coworkers. I'm also grateful that you're willing to continue moving the ball forward with unordered-containers and ekg.
You didn't mention it explicitly, but what about maintainership of Cassava? I have a soft-spot for that library which I've explained in this Github issue and I'd like the library to get the love & attention I think it deserves. Hoping you'll reconsider your appraisal of Haskell in the future, but if you're not having fun, no reason to suffer.
