A standard library even if it is called "Hierarchical Libraries" or
"Base" is a very different beast to a growing application or library
starting ab ovo, though.

Many of the changes proposed on Libraries are controversial, I haven't
counted but I expect uncontroversial (and accepted) changes are the
minority rather than the majority of proposals (successful recent
changes I can see from my inbox seem to be adding applicative
instances for ST where they were obviously missing or fleshing out
some of the Control.Concurrent modules).
