Hi Konrad,

The next release candidate of buddha 1.0 will work with ghc 6. I am in Sweden
at the moment, which is VERY far away from home, so I won't be able to
release it until next week.

As for multi parameter type classes buddha might have enough unofficial
support for them, but not functional dependencies at the moment.

As a designer of debugging tools it is very useful for me to know what kind
of things people want. Your input will help me to prioritise the things that
I implement.

If you have programs with bugs in them then I would love to see them. 
Test cases from "the wild world" are very useful to me also.

I'm sorry that you are disappointed, but I hope that with your feedback
the situation can be improved.
