There is a feature being worked on in GHC HEAD that would let you do

   tmp <- foo
   return Bar{..}

which captures fields from everything of the same name that's in scope. 
  I think this would also satisfy your desire.

(also, the liftM approach doesn't let you choose the order of the 
monadic actions.)
