    1414The idea is to factor out the monad transformers as a Haskell 98 package, which can be used by itself or with type classes based on either functional dependencies or type functions.  Interfaces referring to the monad transformers would be compatible across the different libraries.

    16 The transformers package has been in use for over 18 months, and is used by more than 100 packages.  It is time to complete the transition, and save authors from having to worry about two distinct monad transformer packages. 
     16The transformers and monads-fd packages have been in use for over 18 months, and are used by 112 and 23 packages respectively.  The split structure has been shown to be viable, but its existence in parallel with mtl has meant extra effort for authors of client packages.  It is time to complete the transition.
