...and there isn't one for let/in because you can use just let
(without in) inside a do-block.  Of course the meanings are different
as in the first case the let-bound variables scope only the 'in ...'
part, while without in it scopes the rest of the do block:

do {ini; let ... in ...; rest}  =>  ini >> (let ... in ...) >> rest
do {ini; let ...; ...; rest}  =>  ini >> (let ... in (... >> rest))
