Seemed entirely reasonable to me. If I have a spare moment, I might  
even finally get around to registering so I can add the other thing I  
usually bundle (for inserting effectful computations which don't  
contribute an argument to the main function).

so that   iI f a Ig (putStrLn "Boo!") b Ii
is        do {a' <- a; putStrLn "Boo!"; b' <- b; return (f a b)}

If I'm writing for a mailing list, I'm certainly willing (if  
surprised) to be exploited in this way.

If there is any legalistic need for explicit permission, then we  
should have a permanent permission system on an opt-in basis, perhaps  
recorded in some suitable central and accessible place (like,  
erm, ...). I'm in.
