i agree that the change by itself is reasonable, but fixing all the old
issues and providing new beautiful language version should be project
of its own. for example, i will propose raising precedences when there
are no spaces around operator. this will significantly reduce amount
of parentheses/$s:

f a+b c*d
f g(x) h(y)

for now, wee need to standardize current haskell practice just for
compilers interoperability and teaching purposes (noone wants to write
book about ghc 6.8 or teach students to it)
