> Style Warning! ... writeByte -> Byte.write

Yes yes yes please!

Often, if someone writes identifiersWithSuffix,
the suffix actually carries a type information or a module information,
and the programmer should use the type resp. module system
of the language to express that.

Should this also apply to names in the standard library?
like  Monad (filterM, zipWithM ,..) 
I mean, theoretically yes, but is it feasible to change it?

While we're at it, stylistically: the sight of "g" changing to "G"  
in  getLine -> hGetLine (and similar) always irritates me.
