Plugin support is not well documented, and could do with some love. If someone would like to take it up, I'm sure it could be improved a lot.

I'd love to know a nicer way to do this, but what Ben Lippmeier did as a workaround is require a binding
"repa_primitives = R.primitives"
where repa_primitives is a record with references to all the primitive types you need. It's not great, but it works.

In writing GHC plugins, how can I (a) add a module import (preferably qualified) and (b) make vars/ids for names imported from the newly imported module (to insert in the transformed Core code)?
If it's not possible to do what I want, I'd be willing to require an explicit import (say "import qualified Foo") in client code, as a temporary workaround.
So far I've been unable to import even from the base package. Maybe I'm missing something basic that you folks have learned.
My simple & unsuccessful attempt is at https://github.com/conal/plugin-import-id . Help greatly appreciated.
