[Haskell-cafe] Type Directed Name Resolution

I hadn't seen anyone with this particular concern, so:

The page says "Using qualified names works, but it is just
sufficiently inconvenient that people don't use it much", with which I
disagree. Since I use qualified names, it seems like I wouldn't be
able to use TDNR without compromising. So it introduces an unpleasant
tension. I don't think we should introduce major features that require
a certain style. I would indeed love a shorter way to get record
fields, but surely there is a simpler way? I am still hoping one of
the "real record system" proposals is implemented, but this would
really be the nail in the coffin for them.

I added my opinion to the wiki as well...
