GHC core plugins

Hi José,

The patch implementing GHC plugins is with Simon PJ and awaiting merge
into GHC (and has been for some time - he's a busy guy and its a big
patch). However, even once it's merged some more work will need to be
done to make sure that it plays nicely with the shared library support
(now that has been implemented on all major platforms).

In short, the easiest way to add a pass to the compiler right now is
to download GHC and build it yourself
( Sorry!

All the best,
