Although I can follow your arguments, I thought that the large and disruptive
changes should be done for Haskell 2. If they should really be done now, we
should also fix a lot of other things. For example, the Num hierarchy, the
Functor/Applicative/Monad hierarchy, the fact that there exist Alternative
and MonadPlus although we have Monoid, the fact that we cannot have contexts
like (forall a. Monoid (m a)) which is the source for the last problem, the
fact that we don’t have class aliases, ugly names like fmap and mappend, etc.
