This is nice and simple. My only concern is I'm not sure there's enough of a
distinction between "Monad" and "State Monad". That is, I'm not sure it's
clear enough that the way you're binding the small programs together in the
initial example is only one way you could bind them together, and thus it's
only one instance of Monad.
