[containers-users] API design choice for including the stdlib modules

Hello all,

@orbitz and @drup propose that containers' modules that extend the stdlib should
include the standard module, so that it's not necessary to remember
where a function lives.

For instance, `CCList` should include `List`, so that it's always
possible to replace `List` with `CCList`. No need to remember where
`combine`, `flatten` or `flat_map` live.

I am considering this change because it is not going to impact
modularity or code size much (we already depend on the stdlib anyway).

Opinions and arguments welcome!
