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 http://haskell.cs.yale.edu/ghc/docs/latest/html/libraries/
index.html on the haskell.org frontpage.
Ideally, that's where I'd like to see a separate package for
Codata.Stream pop up.
