And just to add, the new standardisation process means that there will  
also be a Haskell 2011, Haskell 2012, etc.  If a feature is not  
completely specified in time for one standard, then it will not need  
to wait long until it can be accepted in the next one.

Eventually, the process might give us a standard that is stable and  
unchanging, but right now, we need to take it small pieces.
