Here's the Prelude imports I see at the moment. Didn't chase down the
dependencies in all the code initially and now I see that GHC.Show does
import GHC.List. Still, I suspect this has something to do with fusion
import GHC.Base
import GHC.IOBase
import GHC.Exception
import GHC.Read
import GHC.Enum
import GHC.Num
import GHC.Real
import GHC.Float
import GHC.Show
import GHC.Err   ( error, undefined )
