Alternative prelude with batteries and no dependencies

Official package sites : ·

A custom prelude with no dependencies apart from base. This package has the following goals: * provide a base like sets of modules that provide a consistent set of features and bugfixes across multiple versions of GHC (unlike base). * provide a better and more efficient prelude than base's prelude. * be self-sufficient: no external dependencies apart from base. * provide better data-types: packed unicode string by default, arrays. * Better numerical classes that better represent mathematical thing (No more all-in-one Num). * Better I/O system with less Lazy IO * Usual partial functions distinguished through type system

Add extra documentation (API, Javadoc, etc). It is recommended to enable per package instead of globally
enable building experimental features, known as highly unstable or without good support cross-platform
Include coloured haskell sources to generated documentation (dev-haskell/hscolour)
Add support for software performance analysis (will likely vary from ebuild to ebuild)
Enable dependencies and/or preparations necessary to run tests (usually controlled by FEATURES=test but can be toggled independently)
