- the base package has a lot of goop in its Setup script, I really hope
that all, or at least most, of it can be done using configurations
- we have a few packages that want to do conditional dependencies. e.g.
HGL wants to depend on either Win32 or X11.
- IIRC, gtk2hs has a complex structure that will need a lot of conditional
stuff in its .cabal file. Duncan will tell you more.
- take a look at the old discussion on libraries at haskell.org; there were
lots of use cases discussed there.
