Right. Could you provide me more details about what do you think the
bias is?

Anyways, we don't need to use the list monad, we can use a lot of
different monads modeling non-determinism.

By the way, I'm not very confident that using monads is the way to,
but I want to play with them nevertheless, to see what kind of Curry
one get. I know of some papers who have attempted this, and certainly
the result was cool.

Thanks for your comments,

Emilio
