Unfortunately, I don't think that's possible. The problem is that you
'list' will be expressed in terms of foldr/build and fromList would have
to produce a Stream, i.e., basically an unfoldr. But AFAIK, there is no
unfoldr/build fusion rule. There is one the other way round and vector
makes use of that in toList.
