One additional issue:

Data.List is in the base package. Data.Set is in containers.

Data.Set also imports Data.List, so using sets in the latter creates a 
circular dependency.

The latter isn't as big a deal, but circular package dependences sounds like a 
problem to me (as I imagine containers depends on base).

Something else to discuss. :)

P.S.: On point 4, I'd probably lean away from StopList as well. Requiring 
fundeps seems undesirable for a rather core, H98-esque module.
