I think the non-GHC implementations have been struggling for development
time as it is. As you say, we've been trying to increase the amount of
shared code, to reduce the burden on them. I think forking the bootlibs
would represent a huge step the other way, and, as you said later in
your e-mail, may be what finally kills them off.
