I think rio looks very reasonable, it just reuses common libs. foundation
is a cool project but they e.g. implement their own text type which
probably means you will have to do conversions as soon as you try to use
other libs. base-noprelude is only useful if you want to avoid having
access to the default prelude and/or if you want to create your own. classy
prelude seems a bit overkill, the author later released rio so i’m not sure
if classy should be considered deprecated.
