while dlist is certainly a nice and stable library, it is still
relatively specialized, and I would personally not consider it important
enough to be included in the platform. I’d like the platform to stay a
selection of packages that people not only can use, but really should
know about, and use them instead of rolling their own. I’m not sure if
this holds for dlist – using [a] -> [a] and (.) directly is also good

My suggestion is to remove it from aeson, and keep the platform small
and focused.
