[commit: packages/base] master: Implement foldl with foldr (b63face)

Simon Marlow-7
This worries me a bit.  If foldl isn't inlined, I get a less efficient
version, so it has to be inlined everywhere.  So -O0 code gets worse,
and binary sizes for -O1+ get bigger - foldl, sum, and product are now
INLINE.

What I'm arguing is that we should have more flexibility to *not* inline
things (INLINABLE is much better than INLINE), and when not inlining
things we should be calling an efficient version of the function.  This
is why map is not defined in terms of foldr, for instance.

Cheers,
        Simon
