The `MaybeT`

monad transformer extends a monad with the ability to exit
the computation without returning a value.

A sequence of actions produces a value only if all the actions in the sequence do. If one exits, the rest of the sequence is skipped and the composite action exits.

For a variant allowing a range of exception values, see Control.Monad.Trans.Except.

# The MaybeT monad transformer

The parameterizable maybe monad, obtained by composing an arbitrary
monad with the `Maybe`

monad.

Computations are actions that may produce a value or exit.

The `return`

function yields a computation that produces that
value, while `>>=`

sequences two subcomputations, exiting if either
computation does.
