[Haskell-cafe] Are explicit exports and local imports desirable in a production application?

Dear Ignat, 

have you seen

I find the arguments convincing. Even in my own packages I sometimes
get lost where a certain function was imported from. When neither
exports nor imports are done explicitly, you usually have only two
1. search all sources (e.g. with grep -l)
2. rely on the haddock index
Maybe your IDE can do that for you, but you can't expect all downstream
users or all your colleagues to do the same.
