[Haskell-cafe] List of nitpicks

​I wonder if some of these nitpicks could actually be solved by splitting 
"prelude" out as a separate module. Packages could then begin depending on 
a certain version [range] of prelude (apart from base/GHC version). That 
could allow breaking changes to prelude without breaking code (all hail the 
PVP!). Of course, Prelude would still be imported implicitly by default.
