      This commit implements a substantial re-organisation of the Prelude
      It also fixes a couple of small renamer bugs that were reported recently
      	(notably, Sven pointed out that we weren't reporting
      	unused imports properly)
      My original goal was to get rid of all "orphan" modules (i.e. ones
      with instance decls that don't belong either to a tycon or a class
      defined in the same module).  This should reduce the number of
      interface files that have to be read when compiling small Haskell
      But like most expeditions into the Prelude Swamp, it spiraled out
      of control.  The result is quite satisfactory, though.
      	GONE AWAY:	PrelCCall, PrelNumExtra
      	NEW:		PrelReal, PrelFloat, PrelByteArr, PrelNum.hi-boot
      (The extra PrelNum.hi-boot is because of a tiresome thin-air Id, addr2Integer,
      which used to be in PrelBase.)
      Quite a lot of types have moved from one module to another,
      which entails some changes to part of the compiler (PrelInfo, PrelMods) etc,
      and there are a few places in the RTS includes and even in the driver
      that know about these home modules (alas).
      So the rough structure is as follows, in (linearised) dependency order
      	[this list now appears in PrelBase.lhs]
      PrelGHC		Has no implementation.  It defines built-in things, and
      		by importing it you bring them into scope.
      		The source file is PrelGHC.hi-boot, which is just
      		copied to make PrelGHC.hi
      		Classes: CCallable, CReturnable
      PrelBase	Classes: Eq, Ord, Functor, Monad
      		Types:   list, (), Int, Bool, Ordering, Char, String
      PrelTup		Types: tuples, plus instances for PrelBase classes
      PrelShow	Class: Show, plus instances for PrelBase/PrelTup types
      PrelEnum	Class: Enum,  plus instances for PrelBase/PrelTup types
      PrelMaybe	Type: Maybe, plus instances for PrelBase classes
      PrelNum		Class: Num, plus instances for Int
      		Type:  Integer, plus instances for all classes so far (Eq, Ord, Num, Show)
      		Integer is needed here because it is mentioned in the signature
      		of 'fromInteger' in class Num
      PrelReal	Classes: Real, Integral, Fractional, RealFrac
      			 plus instances for Int, Integer
      		Types:  Ratio, Rational
      			plus intances for classes so far
      		Rational is needed here because it is mentioned in the signature
      		of 'toRational' in class Real
      Ix		Classes: Ix, plus instances for Int, Bool, Char, Integer, Ordering, tuples
      PrelArr		Types: Array, MutableArray, MutableVar
      		Does *not* contain any ByteArray stuff (see PrelByteArr)
      		Arrays are used by a function in PrelFloat
      PrelFloat	Classes: Floating, RealFloat
      		Types:   Float, Double, plus instances of all classes so far
      		This module contains everything to do with floating point.
      		It is a big module (900 lines)
      		With a bit of luck, many modules can be compiled without ever reading PrelFloat.hi
      PrelByteArr	Types: ByteArray, MutableByteArray
      		We want this one to be after PrelFloat, because it defines arrays
      		of unboxed floats.
      Other Prelude modules are much easier with fewer complex dependencies.

      When deciding if a module is a "library" module, allow
      as prefixes of the path, not just
      We need to improve this hack, but this fix makes things
      work on Windoze.

      Move the rest of the Concurrent Haskell documentation into the
      GHC/Hugs libraries document, so it now all lives in one place.  Also
      update and tidy it up somewhat.

      Split -fwarn-unused-names into
      	-fwarn-unused-imports	 Warn about unused explicit imports. (in -W)
      	-fwarn-unused-binds	 Warn about unused bindings	     (in -W)
      	-fwarn-unused-matches    Warn about unused names in pattern matches
      				 (not as useful, relegated to -Wall)
