Note that time uses Data.Fixed, so a split-off 'fixed' package would
still have to come with GHC.

If splitting it off I wonder if there's anything else that would
sensibly go into a 'numeric' package. Data.Ratio and Numeric are the two
that come to mind, but it looks like both have a couple of uses
elsewhere in base.
