Closely related is the question of module names. 
'transformers'+'monads-fd' are somehow an successor of 'mtl' and chose 
distinct package names, but there were module name clashes. They mostly 
hurted GHCi users, but this led to a lot of confusion, too.

So the question is, if FGL gets a new name, should it also use different 
module names?
