Description

base: Manually unlit .lhs into .hs modules

This commit mostly converts literate comments into ordinary
Haskell comments or sometimes even Haddock comments, while also
removing literate comments in a few cases where they don't make
much sense anymore.

Moreover, in a few cases trailing whitespaces were removed as well.
