That documentation is really poor.  I really have no idea what problem
this module solves, why I should use it, or how I should use it from the
documentation presented.  

It would be great if someone clarified that a bit.

I note, though, that "making an Either into a Monad" doesn't do anything
to deal with asynchronous exceptions.
