Jfyi, a discussion came up when I posted a proposal to add a
generics-based NFData deriver to the 'deepseq' package, with the result
that the generics-based code was put in the separate `deepseq-generics`


...and since there's plan (iirc) to bring the 'hashable' package into
the haskell-platform, some of the arguments brought up in that thread
with respect to the 'deepseq' package might apply here as well.
