|  Indeed, I wished the 0-ary case would be more alike to the unary and
|  binary case, cf.
|     return f0
|     f1 <$> a1
|     f2 <$> a1 <*> a2
|  What is needed is a nice syntax for "idiom brackets".

Indeed.  I'm quite open to adding idiom brackets to GHC, if everyone can agree on their syntax, and someone would like to offer a patch.

Something like
	(| f a1 a2 |)
