Unsafe hGetContents

Are there any plans to get rid of hGetContents and the semi-closed
handle state for Haskell Prime?

(I call hGetContents unsafe because it adds side effects to pattern
matching, stricly speaking invalidating most of the transformations
which are expected to be valid in a pure language.)
