Yes, I understand

   |> :: Alternative f => f a -> a -> a

as what you are asking for, for an Alternative that can default to

Back to your suggestion, I personally find a written-out `fromMaybe`

other `from...` functions, and the fact that the value comes from a
maybe suggests to me that I have to give a defaul there.
