Hi John,

No, several smaller libraries would be nice.

Yes, MissingH is not the place to put these things. You run the risk
of more name clashes, but thats ok.

Yes, some should, but only after careful review and being split up.
Assuming the Haskell libraries project is still something that should
be continued, once Hackage is up and running suddenly the distinction
becomes minimal.

A few of the functions should be picked out and moved into base, where
they truely are missing.

Make sure more people know about it. I want to start using MissingH
but never got around to it, by continually telling me how great it was
I'm sure I would have started using it earlier. I have various bits of
general libraries strewn around the place, which I might contribute to
