Very good idea.

I like to ask for renaming Graphics.UI to just UI. UIs are not always 
graphical and it’s not so important whether they are.

*Please* name it HTTP, i.e., *with* all caps. HTTP is an acronym so every 
letter stands for a single word. Http doesn’t make sense in my opinion. 
Should Yampa and Grapefruit also go into a namespace Frp instead of FRP? I 
wouldn’t like this. At least, we should have a common rule for case of 
acronyms in identifiers.

Best wishes,
