Int{Map,Set} use the type Word, but I think it was decided a while ago
that this type shouldn't be standard.  Should that be reconsidered?

Also, these modules import Data.Monoid, which contains the non-H98 instance
Monoid (a -> a), making it (and these) non-portable.  One way out would be
to replace that instance in Data.Monoid with one for

data Endo a = Endo { runEndo :: a -> a }
