You might want to look at the Data.Derive system. Basically it's a
giant library of helpers for writing TH-based derivations. It has a
few other cool features, like an automated guesser for sufficiently
regular classes. It's still in the cleanup-for-release stage, so any
questions should not be hesitated on!
