I've tried doing this (and making more widespread use of typeclassed
operations) by writing my own AltPrelude. Unfortunately there is still a
lot of 'unrebindable' syntax (list comprehensions, 'error' forced to
exist in Monad, if-then-else not using nearest Bool, etc) which makes
this hard to achieve.
