For a single patch, it does rather a lot of different things.  It should 
at least be split into four different patches.

Also, am I not mistaken, or does it not change the existing API?

-sendTo,         -- :: HostName -> PortID -> String -> IO ()
+sendTo,         -- :: HostName -> PortID -> B.ByteString -> IO Socket
+sendTo_,        -- :: HostName -> PortID -> B.ByteString -> IO ()
