my program now uses 4 different encodings with a manual reeencoding
between them. it seems that any proposal will break it - now it
assumes that getChar function just reads 8-bit value and dress it into

i don't care about other Haskell implementations, but if they need to
be unified, it may be better to count code base written with GHC and
all other implementations in mind and force all other *hc to use the
same (broken) semantics as ghc

really, i wonder. afaiu, the phrase "avoid success at any cost"
has the same double meaning in English as in Russian and now,
when Haskell got real chances to become widely adopted by industry, it
seems that we try to avoid it... at any cost
