As I understand it, mtl is to be replaced by transformers and one of
the monads-* packages in the future, though there is no clear
recommendation yet. See also
Also, it seems that there is currently no community preference choice
for either type families or functional dependencies.
Personally, I didn't want to think about this and simply chose mtl .
But if you like type families a lot, I see no problem with going ahead
and using transformers + monads-tf .
