Actually independent deriving would help a lot but am not sure of the 

could it be something like

   derive (Ord,Eq,Read,Show,Typeable) (BlogEntry Name Title Body Emai)

Perhaps this is what Neil Mitchell was suggesting with Derive that I was 
not understanding.  If I can use derive like this without a 
pre-processor that would be very nice.
