You could skip the step of making Foreign.Marshal.Error.void and
Control.Monad.void the same function and deprecate
Foreign.Marshal.Error.void immediately. However I generally think that
explicit or qualified imports are the best way to avoid name clashes.
There are many programmers out there that do not program Haskell every day
and do not know where 'void' is defined when they read a Haskell program.
