If I can figure out a way to do so without too much code duplication I
will. Another option would be to use the trick that's used by the pack*
functions which causes the initial checks to be inlined ---and hence
easily optimized away when used with fst.fromMaybe(0,"")--- without
inlining the whole thing.
I'll keep you informed.
