Someone was at one point, but your point is taken; we're finding a type
issue with it that I vaguely recall being an attempt to work around some
ancient ghc weirdness that no longer applies, related to it insisting the
declaration of onlyFor and the declaration of the LayoutModifier instance
looking the same (which overconstrains it so it won't work when used in a
chain with something else; removing the overconstraint works with current
ghc).  Forget this patch and I'll resubmit when we have it working again.
 (I can't test it locally beyond compiling it, yet; my environment is a
complete mess.)
