Yes, you were the one who requested it in the first place. It was  
initially in a separate module. As far as I recall, I only moved it  
to Network.CGI.Monad to avoid it being an orphan instance. This isn't  
really important I guess. I would be ok with moving it somewhere  
else. A separate package would probably be the cleanest, since it  
would allow applications to declare that they need it.
