That's exactly what my patch+new module are supposed to do. I'm still
waiting for Ian to review it and maybe include them in his library.
Besides, since automatic instantiation of Lift seems to be a basic
need for a TH programmer, Wouldn't it be a good idea to merge th-lift
with the mainstream template-haskell library?
