G'day all.

Quoting oleg at pobox.com:

Good point.  It becomes even more obvious when you have a monad

If e === (lift m), then this:

> mif (mif c t' e') t e

translates to (lift m), but this:

> mif c (\x -> mif (t' x) t e) (mif e' t e)

translates to lift m `mplus` lift m, which is definitely different,
since m may alter the transformed monad.
