Thanks for clearing that up.

But why do libraries like mtl or QuickCheck work "out of the box" (on  
my distribution) without having installed them from Hackage? Maybe  
this is just me being a bit thick, but there seems to be at least  
several packages, beyond base, that come bundled with ghc. That's  
what I'd refer to as "standard libraries" - the term comes from the  
link to 
index.html on the frontpage.

Ideally, that's where I'd like to see a separate package for  
Codata.Stream pop up.
