[Haskell-cafe] Is 'flip' really necessary?

Eta-reducing is nice, and sometimes it makes code more readable. But 'flip'
is one of those functions that always seems to hinder rather than help
readability, conversely factoring out flip always makes code easier to
comprehend. I don't see a need for its existence - maybe I'm missing
something and more experienced Haskellers can comment.
