  This syntax, from Haskell, looks
like line noise only if you've never seen lambda calculus.

Something that I would claim applies to the vast majority of Lua programmers.
  The information density for the Haskell syntax is much higher.

Regarding syntax that has higher information density as  'better" would seem to lead you inexorably to APL (or J). It's  not clear to me that higher information density is a positive for this idea.
