I guess you forgot to reply to the cafe.

Well, to me the modified definition I posted looks like the essence of powerset, the set of all subsets. Every element x of the input list divides the powerset in 2 halves, the first one contains x, the second one doesn't. Filtering on the non-deterministic predicate (\x -> return True `mplus` return False) in the List monad does exactly that.
