Sorry for not responding earlier but I didn't pay attention to this
thread at the time.  The reason for finding it now is that I listened
to the FLOSS Weekly's episode on CouchDB yesterday; I stumbled on this
email from a search for haskell+couchdb.

As the author of dataenc I'm interested in fixing any problems you see
with it.  Maybe you could offer some more information:

1. Is this still a problem?  (I'm using GHC 6.8.2 and I'm having no
such problems at the moment.)
2. What can I do to make sure that I get contacted if similar issues
come up in the future?  (Currently bugs can only be reported by
contacting me directly, preferably via email.  Since you didn't I
suspect I haven't communicated that clearly enough though.)
