The HP and PackedString (was: Re: [Haskell-cafe] Removing mtl from

Not of the same gravity as mtl, but I was a bit surprised to see that
PackedString was included, in spite of it being marked as deprecated
Presumably, this is because some other library depends on this, but I
think platform-blessing a deprecated library is a strange thing to
do. If the functionality cannot be replaced in the dependent, could
it be an option to simply integrate the PS functionality? Or should
it be de-deprecated?

FWIW, I strongly agree with this.
If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
