Coincidentally, Edward Kmett pointed me to the exceptions package
while I was trying to generalize some of my packages from using plain
IO to MonadIO. Alas, the transformers package still doesn't subsume
the exceptions package, but IMHO it really should. Looking at the
import list of e.g. Control.Monad.Catch alone is already indicating
that. :-) BTW: System.Console.Haskeline.MonadException has something
similar, but far less complete, too, but that's really a strange place
for such a feature. How did it end up there?
