I am very happy to see
that it doesn't recommend -fglasgow-exts anymore!

However, I still would prefer

          Use LANGUAGE pragma with extension ``PatternSigs'' to permit it

since it points out even more things that many may not have known before...

By the way, some of my LANGUAGE pragmas are getting quite long,
and last time I tried I was not allowed to have a line break in there.

Are there any plans to allow line breaks,
or multiple LANGUAGE pragmas?
