Nice idea. But your code already uses a whole heap of Haskell
extensions which may or may not make it into Haskell'.
monad transformer lib (requires MPTC)
dynamically extensible exceptions
deriving non-standard classes
extended newtype deriving
Certainly, no compiler other than GHC currently implements all of these
