Proposal: Data.Stream

Dear all,

I just uploaded a fairly unspectacular package Data.Stream to  
Hackage. It implements quite a few operations on streams (infinite  
lists), analogous to those defined in Data.List. Sometimes it is just  
good to know a list is infinite.

* Haddock documentation: 
* Hackage homepage: 

I know of a few libraries that implement this package themself (Ross  
Paterson's arrow library and my IOSpec spring to mind). I think it's  
fairly uncontroversial, and would like to see it added to base (I  
realize that there are also proposals to clean up base to speed up  
the build of ghc), or at least, the standard libraries. What's the  
right way to accomplish this? Send a darcs patch to Ian? Submit a  
trac ticket?
