if ghc developers think it's a bad idea they should remove this ticket

i use ghc to develop haskell/c++ program. also, many libs today
written in C++ and inclusion of c++ compiler will help to make more
libraries available for ghc users

alternative way may be inclusion of instructions how to add c++ compiler
to ghc installation - it's not trivial because one need to know which
gcc version should be used and which files copied
