It seems that the liftIO function from MonadIO can be generalized to access whatever the base of a transformer stack happens to be. So there is no need for a liftSTM, liftST, etc.
View New monads/MonadBase.
This is by Iavor S. Diatchki and can be found at http://www.cse.ogi.edu/~diatchki/monadLib/
It is a new version of the mtl package with transformers: ReaderT WriterT StateT ExceptT SearchT ContT
It also defines BaseM which is like MonadBase above.
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 New monads/LazyWriterT that add two "~" to the definition of (>>=) and renames WriterT to LazyWriterT.
A simple monad transformer to allow computations in the transformed monad to generate random values.
View New monads/MonadRandom.
Here is a simple monad/monad transformer for computations which consume values from a (finite or infinite) supply. Note that due to pattern matching, running out of supply in a non-MonadZero monad will cause an error.
View New monads/MonadSupply.
Here is a modified state monad transformer for keeping track of undo/redo states automatically.
View New monads/MonadUndo.
This is a simple (trivial) monad transformer for supplying unique integer values to an algorithm.
View New monads/MonadUnique.
Here's an extension of the ST monad in which the references are ordered and showable (they list their creation index).
