21 actually. case, class, data, default, deriving, do, else, if,
import, in, infix, infixl, infixr, instance, let, module, newtype, of,
then, type, where. There's also three special words that can still be
used as identifiers, so aren't reserved: as, qualified, hiding.

Are we counting the FFI annex ("foreign")?
