Missin MonadException instance for lazy StateT

Description

System.Console.Haskeline.MonadException defines MonadException instances for the monad transformers in the transformers except for the lazy version of StateT.

I don't see a problem in adding an instance for both, but if it were, it should be more clearly explained in the haddocks that StateT refers to its *strict* version (right now, one needs to open the source to understand why no MonadException instance is found)

I was about to report this, but hadn't seen that this was the correct formaulation of the problem. The package CPL fails to build with -fHaskeline because there's "No instance for (MonadException? (StateT UIState (InputT IO)))"; the solution there is to specify State.Strict explicitly, but it was quite a bit of trouble getting to this point...
