I think this is a good solution. With this option you can also include sub
modules so users could choose between 1 and 2. That is, something like
Data.Text -- doesn't preference (i.e., only Str and Chr suffixed ones)
Data.Text.String -- reexports the *Str ones without the Str suffixes
Data.Text.Char -- reexports the *Chr ones without the Chr suffixes
