Have you carefully investigated the OpenSSL license?  We in Debian have
had repeated problems since the OpenSSL license is, as written,
incompatible with the GPL (even linking to OpenSSL is incompatible with
the GPL).  I would hate to have a situation where all GHC-compiled
programs can't be under the GPL.
