It's first time I use TH. It would be nice to point out the motivations for
If everything TH does is doable without it, the point of using it is write
less code, eliminating some necessary and automatically computable code.
But I guess there is some more .....

> Template Haskell might be overkill for this. In the past, I've done:
> > class (Eq b, Show b, MyClass b, MyOtherClass b) => MySynonym b
> > instance (Eq b, Show b, MyClass b, MyOtherClass b) => MySynonym b
