Yep, this was discussed in a Hoogle and Network.Socket thread I
started last week.  There is a wiki for summarizing thoughts [1].
Some time this weekend or next week I intend to submit a Hoogle ticket
proposing what I see as an agreeable outcome.  At that point I hope
Neil will accept and maybe even find time to write code.  The final
step would involve me buying Neil a beer - I've lots of beer-debt to
the Haskell community.
