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.
