One solution was already suggested: to make the comprehension syntax be pure
syntactic sugar whose semantics depends on the semantics of the identifiers
the syntactic sugar expands into.
So you could keep the current list-only comprehension as default, and allow
monad comprehension by providing a library (which the users need to import
so as to hide the Prelude's definition).
