look at alt-network package
improving existing ghc i/o library may be a bad idea since it is a
large monolithic code which is aklready hard to maintain. there was
several efforts to provide new i/o library. of those, my Streams
library was the largest. unfortunately, all who done those libs
stopped their work. so the most probable scenario now is what we
eventually will get ByteString-based modular I/O library from
