The main problem with actually getting the speed we'd like is that the
speed of upstream developers is a limiting factor.  With each package
that is added to ArchHaskell we add yet another possible speed bump.
Finding a solution is tricky, since the only option that doesn't
require a lot of resources is dropping packages.

IIRC yaourt can install packages directly from hackage.  Is that still
the case?
If so I'll be more than happy to disown all AUR packages and close
down the arch-haskell account.

I invented the term Object-Oriented, and I can tell you I did not have
C++ in mind.
