Just a small thing, but it looks like, while the HEAD has been changed
to send --help output to stdout, ghc- still has the
following in ghc/compiler/main/DriverFlags.hs

     dump ('$':'$':s) = hPutStr stderr progName >> dump s
     dump (c:s)       = hPutChar stderr c >> dump s

Is this deliberate, or could it be changed to

     dump ('$':'$':s) = putStr progName >> dump s
     dump (c:s)       = putChar c >> dump s
