You mean something like http://darcs.haskell.org/packages/mtl-split ?
The plan is to split Control.Monad.Identity, Control.Monad.Trans and
Control.Monad.Trans.* off into a separate portable, low-level package.

This demonstrates what I believe to be the only universally true statement
about software engineering:  If you have a great idea, someone else has
already thought of it and has probably done something with it.  :)
