Perhaps I should have mentioned (before sending a formatting error  
report): thanks, this looks great!  Auto-generation is definitely the  
way to go, and well worth the effort.

I did notice one other small item, which is perhaps an infelicity  
rather than an error.  The documentation for Data.List (20.10.1), the  
"By" operations, mentions "It is often convenient to use these  
functions together with Data.Function.on".  But sadly, Data.Function  
is not one of the libraries in the H'2010 set.  I would personally be  
happy to add it, but perhaps it is too late, and we will need to wait  
for H'2011.
