This definitely is the right thing for now, but I think that it's not
too early to start thinking about is what libraries we eventually want
to be in the next Haskell standard library, and put that and only that
into the base package.  A good monad (transformer) library is one such
thing, though admittedly it probably won't be exactly like the ones
that we have now.
