Utility function for quasi-quoters: reading files

I just wrote a useful combinator for quasi-quoters, you may want to include it in the Quote module. It takes an existing quasi-quoter and produces a quasi-quoter that statically reads and parses the content of a file.
quotefile :: QuasiQuoter -> QuasiQuoter quotefile (QuasiQuoter exp pat) = QuasiQuoter (ff exp) (ff pat) where ff old s = runIO (readFile s) >>= old
This is useful when you need to quote data from a separately maintained or generated source file.
