You only have to enable `TemplateHaskellQuotes` to use this. What's
your reason for not wanting to use Template Haskell?

Your general question is, how do I get a representation of this
Haskell identifier which I have in scope which I want to persist into
the future stage. The answer to this question of representation is to
use Template Haskell in general as that is precisely the role
of quotation.
