  • Is `MonadBaseControl` dead?

    Then I found Snap has a MonadBaseControl instance, and thought it should work for me. But sadly to find it losing states. Also I failed to find a user side example of MonadBaseControl on Github (as there're only instance impl. hits), so I have not way to verify whether that's due to my incorrect usage.
