I've found it very hard to compile Yi, at least using the stock Haskell 
packages that come with my Ubuntu system. For starters, it requires GHC 
6.8.3. The latest milestone release (M3) is quite old already. Does 
anyone know when M4 is planned to come out? And will it require a 
bleeding edge Haskell environment like the development version?
