OK great, thanks.  Solo# is it.  Adding ghc-devs: would someone like to make a patch?

Argh. Not another color for the bikeshed. We were so close to a nice universal consensus given your +1 on the thread. =)

Let's end this and just go with Simon's Solo# as it had already achieved a reasonably wide consensus on the thread and we can put this to bed.

Simon: I'd replied a couple of weeks ago on the trac ticket to try to end this, but apparently didn't visibly weigh in in a fashion that obviously carried the full force of the committee.

My vote is for Single/Single#.

Also, in case there is any confusion around this, I was not a member of the CLC when this issue was originally raised, but the committee has accepted me since then.

Dear Libraries Committee
Some time ago Andrew Martin asked you<https://mail.haskell.org/pipermail/libraries/2018-January/028419.html> what the name of the unary unboxed one-tuple type and data constructor should be.  The thread ran for a while, but you never came to a conclusion.
Can we nail this one?   You’ll see on Trac #14673<https://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/14673#comment:19> that chessai wants me to decide 😊.  But it should really be you.
To me, there seems to be something of a consensus around Solo#.
PS: actually I think Andrew may have addressed libraries@ rather than core-libraries-committee@ by mistake.
