Any software compiled with this compiler, or only
software that uses System.Console.Readline?

Isn't this the same on all platforms? If what you are
saying is correct, then isn't it required for any program
compiled with any readline-enabled GHC to have a
GPL-compatible license? I don't think that's
right, but IANAL.
