The Functional part of Hana really should be a separate library. It is not
used much in the implementation anymore, and it is arguably out of scope
for the library. If Fit is accepted, I would like to remove the Functional
of Hana and point users to Fit in a future version of the library. So I
we should really not consider Hana and Fit as conflicting in this regard.
