I just saw that 'row' isn't operating in the 'Maybe' monad but in the 'IO' monad,
so this wont work.

I don't know if 'row' contains any side effects that should also be
executed if the returned 'Maybe' is 'Nothing', if this isn't the case,
then you might be able to switch the return type of 'row' from
'IO (Maybe ...)' to 'Maybe (IO ...)' and then you could get the
described behaviour for 'Maybe'.
