This came up on the mailing list: Why is WriterT never lazy? The answer is it does not use lazy patterns with "~". So here is a more useful NewMonads/LazyWriterT that add two "~" to the definition of (>>=) and renames WriterT to LazyWriterT.

This is very very handy when (Control.Monad.ST.Lazy) is the transformed Monad.
