I think so too. In my opinion X.L.Minimize should do its work without AutoBoring. Boring and Minimizing are different things und should be handled as such. But then we have three different focusing functions and maybe will have even more in the future from other moduls. That's probably not good.

Instead of defining a complete focusing functions within a module, wouldn't it be better, to define only something like a focusingModifier?

Thus we can write something like:

myfocusingFunction = focusingModifier  coreFocusingFunction

in monad.hs. The user can choose his preferred modifier and can even combine them:

myfocusingFunction = focusingModifier1 $ focusingModifier2  coreFocusingFunction
