| Another simple alternative is to weaken the the equation by=20
| replacing the variable r by the empty string: [Alternative B:]
| ...
|    should be the case that
|      fst (head (readsPrec d (showsPrec d x ""))) =3D=3D x

Yes, I like this alternative too.  I'll implement it.

Thank you for spotting it.
