Hi Ben,

Yes, but I think I'll need to do some clean up in the code so that it's obvious where to look for answers. For example, here is a random comment from a Hadrian source file:

-- Objdump is only required on OpenBSD and AIX, as mentioned in #211.

The reader might confuse this with GHC ticket #211, so I guess this should be replaced with a full link https://github.com/snowleopard/hadrian/issues/211. There may be other potential pitfalls, but hopefully nothing difficult to handle.

I've created an issue to discuss and prepare for the merge: https://github.com/snowleopard/hadrian/issues/440.

Well, the GitHub repo will still exist. Is that enough?
