while Hackage provides good place to look for library docs, it says
Nothing about which libraries are standard

instead, ghc bundled libs say it, replaced now by Haskell Platform libs.
but these are de-facto standards, and i think that Report should support
it by defining the same set as standard de-jure

so, we will have H2010 as document defining standard and HP2010 as
download implementing the standard
