[Haskell-cafe] 16 bit floating point data in Haskell?

I think a 16-bit float type would require compiler revisions as
opposed to doing something within the present type classes.

This is similar to how Java would benefit from an unsigned byte
primitive type for processing images, etc., whereas Haskell already
has Word8.
