> You should package this up and put it on hackage.

It is nice, but there is already another FRef package on hackage 
(Data.Accessor) and I have a home-grown one of my own, which uses 
different notation / combinators to either the hackage one or  Tim's.

There are also fragments of FRef-like things in some of the big 
libraries like OpenGL and GTK.

I think it would be worth spending some time (on this mailing list, 
perhaps, or in another forum) trying to hash out a decent API which 
meets most people's requirements, rather than ending up with 4 or 5 
slightly different ones.
