This bug turns out to be simply that Template Haskell is only 
set up for Haskell 98, whereas Jon Cast wants to manipulate 
multi-parameter type clases.

Should we add multi-param type classes to THSyntax?  Does 
anyone feel like doing it?  It's a fairly routine matter, but it 
does mean changing the data type.  (Another reason to use 
bracket syntax!)
