i'm greatly support this. there is a plenty of trivial functions which are
repeated in almost any program. there is a GenUtil module by John
Meacham, NewPrelude at hawiki, Util directory in GHC compiler and many
other places where these trivial functions are conceal itself

so adding even part of this fucntions to std libs will be great.
especially in the face of Haskell' where these functions can be
standartized. i'm especially like to improve situation with string
processing, even strstr() analog is absent in std libs!
