Well, that'll teach me to only look at H98 and extrapolate.

So we could give H98 its own Prelude too, hide the haskell98 package,
and not have it linked by default. That would be consistent with
defaulting to the H2010 (or H2011, as this'll be in 7.2) language too.

This would also free us up to make other Prelude tidyups, e.g. to make
Prelude.catch be the modern version.
