[Haskell-cafe] SYB: extending a generic reader with a type class

Dear -cafe,

Is it possible to extend a generic reader (extR / ext1R from syb) with a
type class?

For example, let

foo :: (Integral a) => SomeMonad a

I could write:

reader = ... `extR` (foo :: SomeMonad Int) `extR` (foo :: SomeMonad Integer)

However, that is tedious.  Could I do something like

reader = ... `extR` foo

and have it apply to all instances of Integral?

I hope I am being clear.

Thank you.
