[Haskell-cafe] Importing more modules by default

Hello Aditya,
you could write a script to generate a starter file for yourself. I do
something like that with my own latex documents. Or have your own special
module that reexports all of those that you import for you own projects.
Its very easy to write your own module that reExports other modules. try it
out. many libraries that you use, such as containers, do that

theres enough variety and complexity to nontrivial  projects that such a
"enforced import" would end badly
