Built a new haskell library, http://hackage.haskell.org/package/scuttlebutt-types

I've been using Secure Scuttlebutt for 6 months or so, and think it's a rather good peer-to-peer social network. But it's very Javascript centric, and I want to be able to play with its data from Haskell.

The scuttlebutt-types library is based on some earlier work by Peter Hajdu. I expanded it to be have all the core Scuttlebutt data types, and got it parsing most of the corpus of Scuttlebutt messages. That took most of yesterday and all of today. The next thing to tackle would be generating JSON for messages formatted so the network accepts it.

I don't know what scuttlebutt-types will be used for. Maybe looking up stats, or building bots, or perhaps even a Scuttlebutt client? We'll see..
