I think the API is pretty stable. Most of the significant research
into iteratee-based APIs has already been performed by users of the
"iteratee" library, and by Oleg. There might be a few
backwards-compatible changes (new modules, new exports, etc). I'm not
planning to make any large changes, such as Mr. Lato's transition to
CPS-based iteratees.

As long as you import the enumerator modules with "qualified" (to
avoid Prelude name clashes), it should be safe to start porting
