Hello, Vincete,

  Thank you for the previous advice. Based on the ideas I had, I have written a draft proposal for this project. The Google Doc link is as follow:

  As the proposal is not final and I am still thinking about any new ideas about monads, I would like to invite you for comments and evaluation on
the manageability and viability of this project.

  Besides, I also added some experimental features that I would like to make during (hopfully) or after this summer. Comments on these features are
also appreciated.

  Thank you very much.
