Should there be a similar place for tooling and libraries?

Those are not part of the language but can significantly change one's 
experience while coding in Haskell.
One of my nitpicks (or rough edges) is that QuickCheck fails by letting 
all tests pass when you mistakenly provide polymorphic type signatures. 
This is definitely not safe default behavior, especially for security
