In fact, since is is 'n' that requires the 'Monad' constraint, I suspect
you'll need to swap the order of the type arguments to get a monad
transformer:
data Wrap n m a = Wrap (m (n a))
Anyway, my main point remains: your first check should be whether what you
have can be captured as a genuine monad.
