{- $naming

The functions in this library use the following naming conventions:

* A postfix \'@M@\' always stands for a function in the Kleisli category:
  The monad type constructor @m@ is added to function results
  (modulo currying) and nowhere else.  So, for example,

> filter  ::              (a ->   Bool) -> [a] ->   [a]
> filterM :: (Monad m) => (a -> m Bool) -> [a] -> m [a]

* A postfix \'@_@\' changes the result type from @(m a)@ to @(m ())@.
  Thus, for example:

> sequence  :: Monad m => [m a] -> m [a]
> sequence_ :: Monad m => [m a] -> m ()

* A prefix \'@m@\' generalizes an existing function to a monadic form.
  Thus, for example:

> filter  ::                (a -> Bool) -> [a] -> [a]
> mfilter :: MonadPlus m => (a -> Bool) -> m a -> m a
