Does it help if we inline the 'const' function and rewrite [True, False]
in monadic notation as (return True `mplus` return False)?
powerSet = filterM (\x -> return True `mplus` return False).
You can see that 'x' is ignored, both True and False are returned, hence
x is preserved in one answer and not preserved in another.
