Sorry, but I think the only reason its halfway acceptable is that
Malcolm didn't break the GHC build yet. If he does, I'll be screaming
as loudly as for anybody else.
What Malcolm is basically saying is that he doesn't contribute to the
functionality of the boot libraries, he simply makes sure they compile
with nhc98. That's a valuable contribution, of course, but to be
honest, I don't think its a valid reason for us to go to the trouble
of having two vcs for ghc.
