QuickCheck 2 has some really nice features, like automatic test case

However, before QuickCheck 2 can get into the platform it needs better
documentation. Several of the modules have nothing but type signatures in
the Haddock documentation and there's a severe lacks of examples. I was
trying to figure out how to test monadic code, using QuickCheck 2, earlier
today but after checking out the documentation and googling around some I
decided I was better off procrastinating instead. ;)
