After some discussion, it was decided to expand the scope of the
permission slightly while we're here, to include any media covered by

    * mailing lists
    * old wiki
    * hpaste.org
    * irc channel

Since specifically on hpaste.org there's often good solutions that don't
appear elsewhere.

If you've already added your name, perhaps check that you agree to your
original contributions to any haskell.org media being treated under the
`simple permissive license'.
