    v4 v5  
     1suggestions should go under the heading that best describes the reasons they should be included.
     2
     3
     4== Require or could use compiler support ==
     5
    16 * Data.Typeable
    27 * Data.Dynamic
     8 * Control.Monad.Fix (for the IO instance)
     9
     10== useful in interfaces between unrleated modules ==
    311
    412 * Data.Map
    513 * Data.Set
     14 * Data.Monoid
    615
    7  * ReadP and assosiated changes to the 'Read' class.
     16
     17== generally useful/improvements ==
     18
     19 * ReadP and assosiated changes to the 'Read' class - the current Read specified by the report leaks memory like a fish and ReadP is signifigantly faster/better. We would also get a basic parsing library with the deal.
     20
     21
    822
    923 * Is there a point to have a library codified in the standard when the fptools library is the de-facto standard anyway?  Does it make a practical difference for anyone?
