Oh well, thanks for all the response.

I have a module with lots of one line function definitons, and they just
*look* ugly when I wrap the return type with Maybe. This is a
straightforward, and trivial job (the conversion) and I really don't care
about other problems (such as non-termination plus some other conditions)
for the time being.

I am not attampting to remove Maybe completely, don't worry :)
I quite like it, and use it in most places. But now always apparently.
