Thanks, waiting eagerly :)  Meanwhile, I tried compiling myself, but
got hung up in compiler/deSugar/Coverage.lhs, where it's not importing
getModificationTime from System.Directory, but if I import that then
we have disagreements about whether the result should be Integer,
ClockTime, or UTCTime.  I'm guessing this is due to recent changes
from old-time to time, and it makes me think if I patch these up there
will just be other problems later, so I must be doing something wrong.
 Either download the 7.4.1 source distribution (I'm using the 7.4 git
branch), or go install 7.2 and compile with that... I don't know if
the tree is just temporarily broken or if I'm supposed to be doing
something to insert a compatibility shim.
