We could keep the old one for backwards compatibility, see below.

Well, it's a bit hard to negotiate with an unknown user base. I propose to
make the new monad package the default (= auto package) in the next GHC release,
but at the same time keeping the old mtl package (which would be non-auto then)
for people who still want it. Or are there technical problems with this approach?
Hmmm, Hugs has no package concept...
