It seems like it was a good idea for me to ask. - What about uploading
all three packages to Hackage (Johannes Waldmann's, Johan Tibell's and
John Meacham's - the package idea seems to be related to the first name
:-) and propose them as addition to the standard Show class? It would help
people to convince no to abuse the Show class for pretty printing.
