The operational package is just a free monad with some canned conveniences.
If what it provides is sufficient for your use case, there's no reason to
switch; but if they don't fit your use case, you can use one of the other
embellished free monads (e.g. MonadPrompt) or start from a bare free monad
and write what you need.
