I was only afraid that it was newly introduced incompatibility, thanks for

There *is* newly introduced incompatibility, though, so PUGS is not built
with a following message:

    No context is allowed on a GADT-style data declaration
    (You can put a context on each contructor, though.)
Build failed: 256 at util/ line 86.

But this is probably a subject of different question.

Best regards,
