I've certainly been wanting a solution to this problem for a long time.
Haskell needs to get past the Prelude compatibly. I've already explored
a lot of ways the classes might be improved with HBase, but right now
it's a whole other world incompatible with the standard Prelude.
Basically if it lets me do Functor => Idiom => Monad, and still compile
earlier code, I'm for it.
