No reason, expect that I didn't have a need for it. Every function that
takes a higher-order argument that combines two values needs a strict
I would like to go over the whole API at some point and see if it could be
simplified somehow, without breaking any packages. The API is overly
complicated an provides lots of functions with overlapping behavior. To do
this properly I need to first build all of Hackage and create an index which
I can use to find all calls to function in Data.Map. Any function that's not
called at all would be a candidate for removal.
