I'd already tried that, but
$ darcs get --partial http://www.cse.unsw.edu.au/~dons/hs-plugins/
Invalid repository: http://www.cse.unsw.edu.au/~dons/hs-plugins
darcs failed: failed to fetch:
http://www.cse.unsw.edu.au/~dons/hs-plugins/_darcs/inventory ExitFailure 1
Is my darcs too old (version 1.0.5) or is the repo actually broken?

Well, again, the .tar.gz from HackageDB is tagged 1.0, it definitely doesn't
work with ghc-6.6.1 on my linux. And it apparently was packed in February, so
it shouldn't be too out of date.
Let me summarize my findings so you guys have something to reason from.
1) if I compile the module and execute the binary, I get
PlugTest: /tmp/MKtHcN2822.o: unknown symbol
PlugTest: user error (resolvedObjs failed.)
2) If I load the compiled code into ghci, load cannot ever find the symbol
resource, originally that is because it looks for main_resource_closure
instead of ModuleName_resource_closure.
Now I changed the code in System.Plugins.Load, so that load does look for the
correct symbol, with baffling results. In compiled code, all loads still
fail. If I load interpreted code into ghci, the first load succeeds, hooray!
But all subsequent loads fail, until I :reload (sometimes) or :load PlugTest
(that always worked so far). How come? When I added debugging output, I could
see that it looked for the correct symbols in the correct .o files, but only
the first found the symbol. Very peculiar.
Could somebody please enlighten me?
