[Haskell-cafe] AMP - how do you motivate this in teaching?

Because of AMP, I have to rewrite slides and example code
for my lectures, and I don't like it.
In fact I probably won't do it, and will advise students
to return to ghc-7.8 - but then, how does that look?
Really, my answer to
 3.5 Beginner friendliness
How often did you say ... "A Monad is always an Applicative"
is: never. (for "is a Functor" - often. In fact, always)
Now, I don't want to bring on another general discussion of AMP -
instead I'd like to hear from people who use monads
in teaching (e.g., to define semantic domains)
about how they sell "Applicative m =>" to their students.
(The intersection of AMPers and teachers is non-empty?)
