thanks, seems i was too optimistic, then!-)

btw, i noticed that the user guide points to the haskell wiki only,
while the latest info seems to be on the ghc wiki. given the number
of variations and the scope of development, it would also be 
helpful if the user guide had at least a one-paragraph executive
summary of the state of play, dated to clarify how up-to-date
that summary is.

that would avoid discussions of not yet stabilized features
(should ghc issue a warning when such are used?).
