> Personally, I think that ByteString and especially Vector Word8 aren't strings and shouldn't be treated as such. But I wouldn't be strongly against showing them as strings. However, I *am* strongly against using UndecidableInstances in vector and I don't see how to implement this without using them.

I meant OverlappingInstances, of course. To clarify, I would still consider it if everybody thinks it's a really good idea.
