iteratee also uses 'transformers', but requires several extensions;
see < http://hackage.haskell.org/packages/archive/iteratee/

It seems silly to avoid extensions, though; every non-trivial package
on Hackage depends on them, either directly or via a dependency. For
example, though 'enumerator' requires no extensions itself, it depends
on both 'text' and 'bytestring', which require a ton of them.
