I must say that I haven't guessed what Haskell.Plus means until I
saw it explained. It is not clear.

Also tools for manipulating the language sources are very different
from language support modules. They should not be put together; it's a
coincidence that they could be put under the title "Haskell".

Instead, tools for manipulating our language (parsers, typecheckers
etc.) should be together with tools for manulpulating other languages,
and language-independent tools.

BTW. I'm working on a Haskell<->Python binding. Where should it go?
