actually it involved haskelldb and a table that had 183 columns. In
order to specify the table with its 183 columns I had to increase the
context-stack slightly from 20 to a mere 190.
BTW there is one thing I find a bit unfortunate in otherwise flawless
haskelldb, each column has to be made an instance of the class FieldTag,
which makes it impossible to do this in a higer-orderish sort of way.
