Add notes about where the IO representation is wired in to various
parts of the source tree, since I'm about to add some more.

......@@ -55,6 +55,23 @@ The IO Monad is just an instance of the ST monad, where the state is
the real world. We use the exception mechanism (in PrelException) to
implement IO exceptions.
NOTE: The IO representation is deeply wired in to various parts of the
system. The following list may or may not be exhaustive:
Compiler - types of various primitives in PrimOp.lhs
RTS - forceIO (StgMiscClosures.hc)
- catchzh_fast, (un)?blockAsyncExceptionszh_fast, raisezh_fast
- raiseAsync (Schedule.c)
Prelude - PrelIOBase.lhs, and several other places including
Libraries - parts of hslibs/lang.

newtype IO a = IO (State# RealWorld -> (# State# RealWorld, a #))
