...and for putting it in Prelude?

It would be interesting to try to estimate the number of functions
useful enough for putting in Prelude - I am starting to be afraid
that there will be too many of them.

One of the nice things about functional languages is that you can create
such functions by combining higher-order functions, without the need to
name the resulting function.

Maybe we could agree to put in Prelude only the N (200? 1000?) most
useful functions ;-)

I am not sure about maybeToM - maybe it will be found useful to many.

Best regards
