Overloaded Quotation Brackets (#246)

This patch implements overloaded quotation brackets which generalise the
desugaring of all quotation forms in terms of a new minimal interface.

The main change is that a quotation, for example, [e| 5 |], will now
have type `Quote m => m Exp` rather than `Q Exp`. The `Quote` typeclass
contains a single method for generating new names which is used when
desugaring binding structures.

The return type of functions from the `Lift` type class, `lift` and `liftTyped` have
been restricted to `forall m . Quote m => m Exp` rather than returning a
result in a Q monad.

More details about the feature can be read in the GHC proposal.
