When does printing TH actually occur? If it doesn't occur during regular
compilation, do we ever need to pretty print large amounts of TH?

actually, it uses a specific combination of lookup+insert, so that it
would suffice to have the single operation in the style of Python's
findWithDefaultInsert :: Ord k => k -> v -> Map k v -> (v, Map k v)
findWithDefaultInsert k default m
| Just v <- Map.lookup k m = (v, m)
| otherwise = default `seq` (default, Map.insert k default m)
