    13 A short summary of the extension/modification. 
     13 
     14Add the Text datatype to the language. 
     15 
     16The text package for GHC exposes a Text datatype that represents a string. 
     17 
     18The current String = [Char] standard has issues with 
     19 
     20  * efficiency: there are more efficient representations than linked lists 
     21  * correctness: for Unicode correctness, one must operate on a string as a whole rather than individual code points 
     22 
     23Promoting Text solves both of these issues.
