Yes, 6.6 or nothing, I'm afraid. GHC 6.6 is already a dependency for
another part of the tool chain, so demanding more than one GHC version
is not feasible.

That's what I thought, but I was hoping to be proven wrong.

I have one sitting around somewhere that works with 6.4, I think.
Nothing I wrote myself, just something I managed to find online - if
you want a copy I'll see if I can dig it out (it was from a while

Having a 6.0 parser is not much use to me, but the second you've got a
6.6 parser I'd love to hear from you!
