I would like to help you with this problem, though with a different library.
You can find EMGM [1] on Hackage. If you have a problem with the
documentation there, please let me know. I would consider it a bug. To
understand it, however, you should consider reading the tech report
"Libraries for Generic Programming in Haskell" [2], an extended version of
an article in a recently published collection of lecture notes from the 2008
Advanced Functional Programming Summer School [3].

I agree that a lot more documentation could help, but I hope this helps.
