I don't have spare cycles left to do the building + testing for
myself, so I'd like to turn this around: Is there any test coverage
regarding the upcoming GHC 7.8 and the libraries in the Haskell
Platform? I'm thinking especially about the examples in
(especially RedBook8/Chapter01). Building alone is not enough, one has
to test this manually. :-/ Avoiding any unpleasant surprises would be
nice. Some nightly builds of the upcoming 7.8 *plus* the HP for
several platforms would really help here. Do we have such a thing?

Regarding -fno-ghci-sandbox: I never needed to use that flag, even
with the GLUT examples in GHCi. When exactly should this be necessary?
