FWIW, I would be thrilled to see automatic resolution of mutually
recursive modules.  When programs start to get large, this always ends
up biting me, and I have to either write & maintain the hi-boot files,
or stuff everything into one module.

Remembering how to do .hi-boot or .hs-boot files is a bit of a mental
barrier for me when I'm trying to refactor and clean up code.
