Someone in a previous thread made an analogy between GHC and the linux
kernel. I imagine that third-party Haskell distributions, consisting
of GHC/Hugs/whatever and some bundled packages, would meet the desire
for a "batteries included" Haskell implementation without tying the
most popular libraries to GHC releases.
