Note about semantics of (!!) is not specific enough, if it's correct
The definition of
GHC.List, copied below, has a vague note about semantics for the Prelude and HBC versions being different. I can't see the difference myself. If there really is a difference, the details should be in the comment.
-- | List index (subscript) operator, starting from 0. -- It is an instance of the more general 'Data.List.genericIndex', -- which takes an index of any integral type. (!!) :: [a] -> Int -> a #ifdef USE_REPORT_PRELUDE xs !! n | n < 0 = error "Prelude.!!: negative index"  !! _ = error "Prelude.!!: index too large" (x:_) !! 0 = x (_:xs) !! n = xs !! (n-1) #else -- HBC version (stolen), then unboxified -- The semantics is not quite the same for error conditions -- in the more efficient version. -- xs !! (I# n0) | isTrue# (n0 <# 0#) = error "Prelude.(!!): negative index\n" | otherwise = sub xs n0 where sub :: [a] -> Int# -> a sub  _ = error "Prelude.(!!): index too large\n" sub (y:ys) n = if isTrue# (n ==# 0#) then y else sub ys (n -# 1#) #endif
