i must figure out that these extensions are not really implemented at
this moment. imho, before including something in standard we need to
play with it some time

imho, features for new Haskell standard must include extensions common
for Hugs and GHC (because implementing in both compilers proves their
usefulness) and most wanted features from GHC. Haskell2 wiki page are
close to list all these features
