Even better would be something like the ‘Haskell Platform’ i.e. a curated collection
of core packages that share the same ‘look&feel’ with the stdlib. Or something similar to the
boost libraries in C++. Or even something like the javax libraries.
So the stdlib could stay fit, while we could still enjoy a collection of standard packages for common
+1000 to this.
Maybe we need more than one level of standard library: The core (which is most of what we have now (but maybe not all of it) and multiple opt-in standard modules for hash functions, math, specialized data structures, etc.
