 The [http://hackage.haskell.org/packages/archive/base/
 /GHC-Generics.html#t:Generic1 documentation] for `Generic1` says:

   ''Representable types of kind {{{* -> *}}} (not yet derivable).''

 I'm not sure if this feature is planned or not, but it would certainly be
 nice to have. Without it, I suspect the `Generic1` representation will not
 see much use, and it doesn't make much sense to write generic functions
 for it.
