+     "A portable library of functor and monad transformers, inspired by the paper
+'Functional Programming with Overloading and Higher-Order Polymorphism',
+by Mark P Jones.  This package contains the monad transformer class and IO monad class,
+concrete functor and monad transformers, each with associated operations and functions
+to lift operations associated with other transformers.  The package can be used on
+its own in portable Haskell code, in which case operations need to be manually lifted
+through transformer stacks.  Alternatively, it can be used with the
+non-portable monad classes in the @code{mtl} or @code{monads-tf} packages,
+which automatically lift operations introduced by monad transformers through
+other transformers.")
