This workaround is actually "state-of-the-art"! :-P If you look at the
hierarchical libraries, there is often code like:
data VertexArrayDescriptor a =
VertexArrayDescriptor !NumComponents !DataType !Stride !(Ptr a)
-- Help Haddock a bit, because it doesn't do any instance inference.
instance Eq (VertexArrayDescriptor a)
instance Ord (VertexArrayDescriptor a)
instance Show (VertexArrayDescriptor a)
deriving ( Eq, Ord, Show )
