Hi Alexander,

It's hard to explain the general nervousness with modifying prelude + base.
It's like a shared commons where rapid changes cause confusion.

The general wisdom is that it's very easy to add idiomatic functions to
one's kit. And by kit, I mean something like John Goerzen's MissingH.

The big, silent shops that use Haskell commercially all have their own kits.
