i think that the better way will be to put all these functions into
extralibs bundled with ghc. this will allow me to control which
concrete version of lib i import and therefore which set of functions
i've used. i don't like idea of editing my module imports each time i
use new functions

yes. `forever` function was also so natural that my program becomes
incompatible with ghc 6.8. it's really annoying!
